Senior Lip Sync is an annual fundraiser for the Laura Beth Erb Memorial Scholarship. Laura was a senior at Mother of Mercy in 2001, when she lost control of her car on the way to school and hit a telephone pole. She really enjoyed Mercy, so MMH holds a Lip Sync competition every year in her honor. It is $3 per entry and all of the money goes towards the Scholarship. It took place in Mercy’s theater on Wednesday, October 14th at 7:00pm. Baked goods were sold in the lobby right outside the theater. Posters covered the school enticing you to come to the show.
There was a special guest this year, making you to want to come and see it for yourself, besides over snapchat. *Find out who later in this blog post*
Mrs. Kroner, judging for accuracy, Mrs. David, judging for style, and Mrs. Bird, judging for overall performance, watched the acts as each one lip-synced their way to the top.
The MC’s for the evening were Lexi Carey and Julia Brown.
The theater was filled with students, families of the performers, and faculty/staff. Almost every single seat was filled. There were seven acts (including our special guests) that you’ll see below.
Act 1: Cheetah Girls
The girls were all happy and energetic to be on stage with each other and didn’t care how awkward they looked. (even if they did tie for last).
Act 2: Disney Divas
The girls swapped their outfits from nice and innocent Disney stars, to rebellious and fierce Disney divas (Plus Joe Jonas) (Or is it Ray Goren?)
Act 3: 90’s Mash-up
The girls threw it way back to the 90’s and danced in circles on stage with each other.
Act 4: Tiff &Co.
(From left to right) Ms. Blum, Ms. Antons, Mr. Burton, and Ms. Keller…
…Plus Mr. Bouman…
…poor Mr. Burton.
