This Thursday, Post hosted its annual Greek Sing event where members of Greek life compete to put on the best 15-minute musical performance. This year’s theme was Disney, and three different groups competed with modified versions of classic Disney pieces.
First to the stage was Delta Zeta and Theta Chi, with a performance of “Hercules.” Their performance included the songs, “Go the Distance” and “I Won’t Say I’m in Love.” They were followed by Sigma Delta Tau and Phi Sigma Kappa, with their performance of “Peter Pan.” They performed “I’m Flying” and “I Won’t Grow Up.”
Closing the show was Alpha Epsilon Phi and Tau Kappa Epsilon, who performed “Beauty and the Beast,” singing “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
Each group presented choreography and a variety of costumes. In “Hercules” Delta Zeta and Theta Chi changed the script to portray Hercules’ transformation into a frat god in order to return to Mount Olympus. In “Peter Pan,” Peter lives in south campus and the pirates take the shuttle. In “Beauty and the Beast,” Belle sees her father though a magic mirror trapped on campus.
In the end, judges deliberated and decided Delta Zeta and Theta Chi’s performance of “Hercules” the winner of Greek Sing 2017.
“As a freshman who comes from so far away, it was awesome to not only work and get closer with my sisters but with Theta Chi as well. Preparing for Greek Sing was stressful, but the end result was so worth it,” Margaret Levin, freshman musical theatre major and member of Delta Zeta, said.
“Long nights, hard work, and a whole lot of glitter…the perfect combination for us to win Greek Sing,” Chance Bianco, junior nutrition major and member of Theta Chi, said. He feels the work put into the performance helped them win.
Lexi Wiesmann, junior political science major, attended the performance. “It was really great to see everyone getting so into it with Greek Week still a semester away,” she said. Greek Sing is the first of many Greek Week events that will be taking place this year.
