Simba, Nala, Sandy, Danny, Annie, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Tony Manero, Stephanie Mangano, Velma Kelly, Roxie Hart, Billy Flynn, Elle Woods and Warner Huntington III will all be making an appearance at McFarlin Auditorium Friday night as Program Council presents Sing Song 2008.

“A Night on Broadway” will feature seven different performances from 13 groups doing their own impressions of Broadway musicals.

Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Phi Epsilon will be performing “Chicago,” a story of greed and corruption.

Last year’s third-place winners, Kappa Alpha Theta and Pi Kappa Alpha team up once again for their take on “Grease.” The story of Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski is set at Rydell High in the 1950s.

Gamma Phi Beta, who won first place last year with Sigma Phi Epsilon, is flying solo to portray its rendition of “Annie,” the story of an orphan who decides to find her parents.

Delta Delta Delta will be performing a recent addition to Broadway, “Legally Blonde.”

Kappa Kappa Gamma has partnered with Kappa Alpha Order to perform “Saturday Night Fever,” the story that helped spread the rise of disco.

Delta Gamma and the SMU men’s swim team, the only non-Greek organization in the entire program, have chosen “Jersey Boys,” a musical based on the lives of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons.

Chi Omega and Lambda Chi will try to steal first place, after earning second place last year, with their performance of Disney favorite “The Lion King.”

Participants have been working hard for months to perfect their routines.

“We are doing a Greek rendition of ‘The Lion King,'” sophomore Page Leahy, Chi Omega Sing Song Chair said. “We just want the audience to laugh and have a great time and hopefully all our hard work from the semester will pay off.”

Fifteen hundred people are expected to attend. The show is expected to be two hours long, and awards will be presented at the end. There will be a first, second and third place for overall groups, as well as best female vocalist, best male vocalist, best backdrop and best choreography.

Tickets are being sold at the Mane Desk in Hughes-Trigg. The price is $10 for SMU students, faculty and staff, and $15 for others. Tickets will also be available the night of the show at McFarlin Auditorium.
