Greek Life Steals the Spotlight
Finally, all the paperwork, deadlines, dance moves, and set designs were put into place for the 2010 Greek Sing. Penn State’s Greek life has been practicing long and hard all over campus for this Battle of Broadway. Fraternities and sororities paired up to “Steal the Spotlight,” which was this year’s theme. Eisenhower auditorium was filled with cheers and screams as each pair took the stage on Sunday. Jaysen Gold, master of Ceremonies, was the host, and had trouble pronouncing most organizations, names, and other words as well.
The overall winners for both categories were Delta Gamma, Alpha Tau Omega and Kappa Sigma with Spamalot in first, then Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Phi Episilon Rock of Ages, followed by Chi Omega and Delta Tau Delta with Jungle Book. In fourth was Footloose by Delta Zeta, Sigma P,i and Sigma Nu, and fifth was Alpha Omicron Pi and ACACIA with Pocahontas.
Delta Gamma, Alpha Tau Omega and Kappa Sigma stole the show with their rendition of Spamalot. They took first place for spirit points, and best costume as well as first place in long and overall performances.
The three short winners were Sound of Music by Alpha Chi Omega and Pi Kappa Alpha, Mulan by Sigma Delta Tau, Theta Delta Chi and Kappa Alpha Psi and The Wizard of OZ by Sigma Sigma Sigma, Theta Chi and Delta Upsilon. The long performance winners were Spamalot, Lion King, and Rock of Ages. Zeta Tau Alpha and Sigma Chi’s Lion King brought out a stomp vibe with cans and shopping cards and won best choreography.
Little awards were given out to Kappa Kappa Gamma and Kappa Delta Rho for best T-shirt design, Alpha Phi and Beta Sigma Beta for best window design and to Chi Omega and Delta Tau Delta for set design. The best female lead went to Danielle Dietzek with Alpha Omicron Pi and ACACIA’s version of Pocahontas.
