Although things have not gone as planned, the Associated Student Body will be presenting Long Beach City College’s 62nd annual Spring Sing on Friday, May 3 at 7 p.m.

ASB Representative of Arts Sarah Twilley, said, “Spring Sing is a variety show put on by students, for students. The mission of Spring Sing is to produce an entertaining performing arts program and a rewarding contest for participants, while raising funds for scholarships.”

To encourage additional participants, the registration deadline has been extended until Monday, April 22 at 4 p.m.

Due to “scheduling conflicts,” this year’s Spring Sing will be in the Hall of Champions, the large gym, instead of its usual stage in the auditorium, Student Life coordinator Maya Cardenas said.

The change in location “is kind of disappointing because it’s not going to have the same kind of effect as it would have in the auditorium, but I think it’s going to be fun either way,” first Vice President of the Order of Tong International Lance Wilson said.

The change in location affects more than simple the participants with its “smaller stage area,” Cardenas said. Due to a smaller and more limited capacity, people planning to attend might want to arrive early to ensure a seat.

“The cost of tickets will not be changing,” Cardenas said. Pre-sale tickets are $7 and may be purchased from any Spring Sing participant or will be $10 at the door.
