LSU’s Musical Theater Club raises the post-carnival blues with “Singo!” | Arts

LSU’s Musical Theater Club has the cure for your post-carnival blues – more merrymaking.

The club organizes its 17th “Singo!” musical review on Friday, March 8 at the LSU Union Theater.

The show is free and the music will be non-stop as 41 performers sing and dance to popular musical songs from Broadway and movies from the 1960s to the present day.

This year’s theme is “Reunion”.

“We’re looking for a sense of belonging this year,” said Jonathan Thomas, who co-leads with fellow club member Savannah Chiasson. “So many people feel left out. We chose songs about who you are. It’s about finding your place in the world.”

Twenty-five songs from musicals such as “Matilda”, “Cabaret”, “Spring Awakening”, “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Grease” will be performed with the accompaniment of a seven-piece band.

“Singo! is a year-end tradition passed down from the LSU Musical Theater class, which was discontinued in 2016. Class members formed the club and not only continued to perform “Singo!”, but also started to organize a full annual musical.

Each week, we’ll highlight the best restaurants and events in metro Baton Rouge. Register today.

Club members represent a variety of majors across LSU’s academic spectrum.
