“After months of hard work and countless hours, it’s time for those polished Sing acts to shine. The curtain rose Thursday night, opening a new year of All-University Sing, one of Baylor’s most cherished traditions. The Lariat staff knows the dedication and time members of each act have put into these performances while still being committed to academics, jobs and extracurriculars. Nevertheless, our Sing reviews strive to highlight the superb acts. This is a place where innovation and vitality are recognized.”
DELTA DELTA DELTA
“Back to Our Roots”
Tri Delt radiated happiness in their garden-themed performance. They were altogether fun, creative, organized and theatrically impressive. Their hard work absolutely blossomed into a performance to remember.
PI KAPPA PHI
Crisp song selection and hot costume design helped Pi Kapp channel their inner “greaser” all too well. Sloppy dance moves, however, made us wonder if the floor was as greasy as their hair.
ALPHA CHI OMEGA
“Sky Full of Stars”
Alpha Omega Chi definitely shot for the stars with their out-of-this-world depiction of human-alien contact. However, glittery costumes and a consistent storyline did not make up for undistinguished vocal and dance performances.
ALPHA DELTA PI
“When Life Gives You Lemons”
ADPi pulled off a very clean performance that featured an excellent tap dancing number and adorable umbrella props. The lemonade stand missed a mark by being all sweet and no sour, as ADPi executed a too-easy performance and took no risks.
BETA THETA PI
“Beta Our Guest”
Beta Theta Pi invites you to its “five-star” Beta Bistro, but you might find yourself being stingy with the tip. Dressed for the role, but otherwise unprepared, Beta engaged the audience with recognizable songs and creative sequences of choreography.
KAPPA OMEGA TAU
“Sweet Dreams ”
KOT’s act was truly a dream, as they rocked the stage with scary-good choreography. Noticeably subpar music quality was the only thing that darkened this otherwise clean show.
PHI GAMMA DELTA
With an unexpected, entirely original theme, Fiji pulled off an absorbing performance as a personified foosball table. Sharp wit and lots of laughter rectified mediocre song and dance execution.
“Shiny Teeth and Me”
The Chi-O tooth fairies flashed their pearly whites in near perfect synchronization. Their opening sequence was professional and their vocal performances never fell short. However, despite their upbeat songs, the Chi-O tooth fairies missed out on a great theme.
KAPPA ALPHA THETA
Theta bowled a Turkey with their endearing enthusiasm and creative execution of their theme. Despite drawing laughter from the crowd, Theta could have spared themselves some criticism with cleaner dance moves.
DELTA TAU DELTA
Delt pulled off a “Harry” performance, and it was clear the audience had as much fun as the performers did on stage. They were anything but magical when it came to choreography, but it was no “Cruciatus Curse.”
Sigma Chi performed with raw emotion in an attempt to portray the Alamo. Better than average vocals carried a performance that felt dull at moments. Slightly contradicting was the lighthearted dance moves that contrasted a somber theme.
KAPPA CHI ALPHA
“Singing in the Rain”
A little rain didn’t keep these brightly-clad ladies from leaping with joy. Spot-on vocals and peppy choreography made up for an otherwise uninteresting performance due to a humdrum theme choice.
ZETA TAU ALPHA
The schoolgirls of ZTA were characteristically preppy, bringing a powerful energy to their overall performance. Of all the dream sequences presented in Sing 2018, however, Zeta’s seemed particularly unimaginative.
ALPHA TAU OMEGA
“Life Ain’t Half Dad”
Equipped with vests, flannel and fanny packs, ATO was undeniably adorable. Although their singing and dancing were a little off at times, they executed their theme with no risk of rocking the crowd to sleep.
KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA
“Workin’ at the Carwash”
Kappa hailed from the 1960’s sporting jumpsuits, platform heels and glittery eye shadow in a car wash performance that was bubbly from start to finish. Although the dancers on stage gushed with energy, they didn’t get much attention from the crowd
“Sweatin’ With Sing Alliance”
Sing Alliance channeled just about every ‘80s workout trope. They were energetic, colorful and just the right amount of quirky to win the hearts of the audience. Unfortunately, like any work out video would, their dance moves were a little too repetitive.
PI BETA PHI & PHI KAPPA CHI
“The Tortoise and the Hare”
Pi Phi and Phi Chi revived a classic tale with their high energy and enthusiasm. The most breathtaking element of the performance was easily the costumes, but the singing and danging didn’t disappoint in the least. Even still, we think Baylor expected much more out of such a creative theme.
