The opening act of Pigskin Revue is always one way for crowds to generate excitement for the homecoming festivities ahead, and this year has participants and viewers alike looking forward to a weekend of talented musicians, colorful costumes and sleek choreography.
Pigskin features the top eight performances from last spring’s All-University Sing, a Broadway-style competition between groups who have spent months choreographing their musical numbers for the judges.
“I think it’s going to be a very, very electrifying performance,” Ennis senior Matt Howerton said. “Pigskin, I think, people enjoy even more than Sing because it’s the best; there’s a lot of talent. We have a diversified group of acts.”
Pigskin offers a relaxed environment for teams to display their acts one last time before beginning to plan for next spring’s Sing.
The eight groups to perform are Alpha Tau Omega, Chi Omega & Phi Kappa Chi, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Sing Alliance in addition to Pi Beta Phi, Kappa Omega Tau, and Delta Delta Delta, who were the top three teams from last spring, winning first, second, third respectively.
Last year’s top act, Pi Beta Phi, is one of the most anticipated performances with their idea “Welcome to Your 80s, Ladies.”
Howerton anticipates everyone having a fantastic time and said, “Every alumni will be gripping their chair.”
Pigskin continues at 6:30 and 10:30 p.m. at Waco Hall, and on Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are sold out.
