The 40th annual Songfest production was a crowd pleaser as the high-energy musical revue once again brought the Campbell Center to life during Spring Panther Days. Under the direction of Mrs. Amy Fraser and student assistant Nolan Henningson, months of planning, designing, creating, and rehearsing went into the three-night event with its closing finale on Saturday night of the big recruiting weekend.

Hosting this year’s show were Thomas Eckhart, Tyler Goodwin. Lilianna Herrera, Cameron Merrill, Olivia Nabb, Danielle Palensky, Colby Smith, and Levi Swenson.  The performers were tremendous in their roles and had a great mix of solos and group numbers that covered a wide range of music styles.

Once again, the social clubs put their best feet forward with their song selections, costumes, and choreographed moves.  Delta Chi Alpha and Kyodai began the club numbers with their “Channel Surfing” theme, followed by “Icons of the Ages” produced by the women and men of Omega Phi and Kingsmen.  In the second half of the show Theta Psi and Sigma Tau gave us a high energy show of twists and turns with “Party in the USA” and Beta Beta Sigma and Koinonia completed the club productions with their circus theme of “A Night Under the Big Top.”

After Saturday night’s performance, clubs anxiously awaited with the audience to hear the judges’ tally of their three-night production and pre-show points:
