Over the years more than 16,000 students have participated in Singarama. Armed only with their category, the students in each group develop storylines; write scripts; choose a minimum of 8 songs and accompanying choreography; and design and create sets and costumes ... and that is only the beginning! The shows, evaluated over four performances by a panel of 18 judges, compete in three categories (theme, music, and staging) and in overall sweepstakes points.
Singarama has survived, Gamble thinks, because "Singarama is about building relationships and a sense of community. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and to engage with friends in the fun and creative process of building a 25 minute mini-musical from the ground up, culminating in the collective sense of accomplishment the students feel when they get to perform their show in front of the appreciative Singarama audiences. It is impossible to measure on an individual basis the sense of accomplishment, the fun, and the friendships that can be attributed to Singarama."
