Students, alumni and friends of Harding University come together March 24-26 for the 43rd annual Spring Sing

SEARCY, Ark. — Students, alumni and friends of Harding University are coming together March 24-26 for the 43rd annual Spring Sing. The theme “Retro-bution” will highlight the greatest moments of pop culture from the 70s and 80s.

Dr. Steven Frye, Spring Sing director for the last 22 years, said he is looking forward to the way the show will connect audience members and participants of all ages this year. It is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents for a greater cause while also presenting the community with a chance to get involved. More than 75 percent of students active in social clubs will participate in one of the eight club performances. The winning group donates its prize money to an area charity.

“Nostalgia is never new,” Frye said. “But the pull to step back in time is simply irresistible. Retro style suggests a modern look containing elements of a previous era. Spring Sing started in the 70s and grew up in the 80s. We have come a long way as a university and as a production since then. Yet, no matter the time and distance covered, it still seems that the music, the movies, and the pop culture of the 70s and the 80s keeps on keepin’ on! So, why fight it? It’s time for Retro-bution!”

Showtimes are Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m.; Friday, March 25 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, March 26 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Benson Auditorium. Tickets may be purchased for $15 or $18.

Harding is the largest private university in Arkansas and has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report for the 22nd consecutive year as a top 25 sch
