The musical “Better Late Than Never,” produced by social clubs Gamma Xi, Phi Sigma, Sigma Iota Delta and friends, swept the awards at Singarama 2011, held March 31-April 2. Singarama is Lipscomb University's the annual student-produced variety show.
“For Good Measure,” was the 2011 Singarama theme, and three mini-musicals with the themes time, distance and temperature were produced. The production involves hundreds of students on stage, behind the scenes and in the spotlight.
“Better Late Than Never” swept all the categories, winning best theme, music and staging to bring home the 2011 Singarama Sweepstakes Award. Students Morgan Philley and Patrick McAnally served as director and assistant director respectively.
