Sing Song 2020 will take place the weekend of Feb. 21-23.
This year’s lineup is complete with 14 total acts, not including performances by hosts and hostesses.
Directors of Sing Song 2020 acts in the women’s social club division are as follows: Bri Burns, directing Alpha Kai Omega; Allie Foster, directing Delta Theta; Hannah McIntyre, directing GATA; Abby Ware, directing Ko Jo Kai; Jessica Overton, directing Sigma Theta Chi; Cassie Christian, directing Tri Kappa Gamma.
Directors of Sing Song 2020 acts in the men’s social club division are as follows: Tyler Cepica, directing Frater Sodalis; Jax Pimentel, directing Galaxy; Mitchell Bradford, directing Gamma Sigma Phi; Theo McCracken, directing Pi Kappa.
Directors of Sing Song 2020 acts in the class division are as follows: McKenzie Losher and Beaux Brownlow, co-directing Freshman Candyland; Spencer Kasselman and Lucas Lanman co-directing Freshman Penguins; Jackson Scott, directing Sophomores; Sloan Palvado, directing Seniors.
Tyler Cepica, senior biochemistry major from Lubbock and director of Frater Sodalis’s Sing Song act, said if he had to put a number on the hours he spends a week thinking about or directing his act, it would add up to around 14 hours.
“Directing Sing Song starts in the fall and takes hours and hours of hard work and dedication to put on a good act,” Cepica said. “The most challenging part of directing a Sing Song act so far, has been finding a balance between work and rest in rehearsals. There is a lot to do in such a short period of time before the first performance, so it’s important to be efficient in rehearsals but not so much so that it harms those participating whether it be their energy, health or even their voice.”
Cepica said the most rewarding part of directing his club Sing Song act, however, is the brotherhood.
“I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t care about developing camaraderie and glorifying Christ by engaging in fellowship,” Cepica said. “There is a natural progression of hospitality that turns strangers to friends and friends to family. Watching this enact itself from the perspective of a director in the context of Sing Song is just amazing.”
Sing Song 2020 will not have an over-arching theme this year.
Kasey Birchfield, senior musical theatre and business management major from Lubbock and hostess of Sing Song 2020, said perhaps having no overall theme marks a motion into a new era of Sing Song.
“The first time I saw sing-song was back in 2015 and I was in absolute awe,” Birchfield said. “Ever since then It has been my dream to be a hostess. I am just excited because I am seeing a dream come true. It’s truly surreal. I am soaking in the experience since this is my last spring semester at ACU. Getting to be a part of this huge tradition is just amazing.”
Birchfield hinted at a hosts and hostesses performance of a Beatles medley.
Performances will be Feb. 21 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 22 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. in Moody Coliseum. Prices vary upon date and time.
