BROWNWOOD – February 27, 2013 – Howard Payne University students will perform in the annual Spring Sing event on Friday and Saturday, March 1-2, at 7:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively, in Mims Auditorium.
This year’s theme is “Once Upon a Time” and each participating group will perform a 12-minute original musical sketch incorporating pieces from fantastic stories and fairy tales. Student organizations participating in this year’s event include Chi Alpha Omega, Delta Chi Rho, Iota Chi Alpha and Sigma Theta Phi.
Spring Sing is a popular event on the HPU campus, drawing audiences of students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community. Tickets are $4 for HPU students, $6 for non-students and $8 for reserved seating, and can be purchased at the Cashier’s Office (room 203 of HPU’s Packer Administration Building) or during lunch in the Mabee University Center. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door on the evenings of the event.
A Spring Sing student committee, chaired by Lara Hernandez, a junior from Brownwood, and Haley Jones, a junior from Terrell, is coordinating this year’s production. Staff advisers include Nancy Pryor, resident director; Jake Sneath, resident director; Tyler Sellers, associate dean of students and director of student activities; and Dr. Brent Marsh, vice president for student life and dean of students.
“The students have put a lot of hard work into their performances,” Sneath said. “We are excited to welcome the community to this event to get a glimpse of the fun student life at HPU.”
