The plots for this year's Singarama musicals are:

  • Stop:  A surprise theft during their morning shift inspires crossing guards Rick and Louis to go on a mission seeking justice, glory and romance.
  • Drop: Dan's fear has held him back his whole life, but when he gets an invitation to a college reunion, he must gain courage to finally drop his fear once and for all.
  • Roll: Feeling lonely, Stanley decides that a new bike is just what he needs to convince people to like him. Can Stanley roll his way into the hearts of his friends with a shiny new bike, or will fate teach him a lesson about true friendship?

Singarama has been performed for 51 years at Lipscomb and more than 16,000 students have participated over the years. Past audiences have been treated to a variety of musical styles from pop and country hits to gospel and jazz standards. The groups are judged at each performance on a number of different criteria and an overall winner is announced at the final show.
