OBU's Campus Activities Board promises an evening of fun and entertainment as they present "Spring Affair Safari" on Saturday, April 13, at 8 p.m. in Raley Chapel. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the free performance; the community is welcome and encouraged to attend.
The production's directors, OBU seniors Parker Goforth and Tristen Rizzo, selected the Safari theme to carry throughout the show - from the decorations and skits to the stage band songs and more. Goforth is an applied communications major from Tulsa, Okla., and Tristen Rizzo is a pre-allied health major from Owasso, Okla.
"The theme of the show, along with the design of the props and decorations, will set this show apart from others of the past," Goforth said. "We have excellent and creative prop creators leading to a beautiful atmosphere and amazing costumes, as well as an awesome tech crew developing videos for the performance."
While the theme of this show is unlike any other, there is familiarity for those who have attended a past Campus Activities Board production. The show will feature eight acts, including individual instrumentalists with vocals, larger bands and more.
The show also will include emcee skit acts, providing audiences with insight into OBU students' creativity. Emcees for the show include Paul Inman, Charity Jernigan, Elizabeth Sidler, Elijah Sigler and Lauren Smith.
Campus Activities Board sponsors three major talent and variety shows each academic year: Biggie, Freshmen Follies and Spring Affair. Biggie is reserved for upperclassmen presenters; Follies showcases freshmen talent; and Spring Affair is open to all classifications for participation. Acts and emcees must audition to be a part of each show.
