MURRAY, Ky. -- Murray State University students have been working since the fall semester to bring the Murray community the 82nd annual Campus Lights performance of Mamma Mia! The performance will take place at Lovett Auditorium January 18-19 at 7:30 p.m. and January 20 at 2:30 p.m.
Campus Lights is an entirely student-run production headed by Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. The production, regarded as the longest-running student-run musical in the south, was established in 1938.
"Campus Lights unifies the two music fraternities on campus with one purpose: raising money for music scholarships," said Lucas Morgan, Campus Lights Chairman. "These scholarships assist very talented musical students during their time at Murray State, and they make it possible for them to go on to advance music in America."
Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha dedicate themselves to furthering music on campus and in the community. Morgan said students begin preparing for the production as soon as the semester concludes on lines, music, set, costumes, and more.
"Attendees can expect to see a full, Broadway-scale musical," said Morgan. "We do not cut any corners and work very hard in three short weeks to present a memorable, fun experience for our audience."
