If you are planning on participating in Lip Sync on April 12, 2024, please read the following essential information as new parameters are necessary for this highly popular event.

ATTENDANCE AT THE SHOW - parents of students in the acts will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets. The number of students participating will determine how many tickets each family can purchase to not oversell the venue.

TRY-OUTS - To provide the best show possible in the limited amount of time available, we will be limiting the number of acts. If you would like to be considered for an act, please do the following:
  • ASAP - Submit your information on the registration form HERE to reserve your song. Please include the link to the exact song you want. No duplicate songs will be allowed.
  • To maximize the number of students who can participate in the show, solo acts are not allowed. We encourage kids to at least become a duet and ideally invite friends to hold props in the background if they do not want to do the work of choreography and memorizing words to the song for lip-sync to involve more of their friends in the show.
  • Grade Level acts that are open to the whole class should have the act coordinator reach out to the parents in your grade to get a list of those students wanting to participate and their parent's email addresses. Act Coordinators can work with the elementary campus office to reserve practice space and communicate plans for practice, costumes, props, etc... to parents of participants.
  • By March 25th - Submit to Kyna Ritchie at or Lynaya Herberholz at or, either a video of your progress and/or a description of your plan (costumes, choreography, props, concept, etc... to maximize the points system listed HERE.) Kyna and Lynaya can help you brainstorm details should you need help. We ideally want acts that strive to earn points in all the categories listed in the point system to make it the best show.
  • March 29th - The top 15 acts submitted will be notified that they are in the show. Grade Level acts open to all students are guaranteed a slot in the show. Exclusive acts will fill in the gaps around the Grade Level acts. (15 for Elementary Show, 15 for Secondary Show)
  • March 29th - The ticketing link will be released to parents of the students in the acts to purchase tickets (ie. need for parent emails). Based on the number of students participating in the show, parents will be able to purchase a certain number of tickets to not oversell the seats in the house.
  • April 3rd - If remaining tickets are available after parents purchase their desired tickets, the rest of the tickets will be available for public purchase via the online square store.

* NOTE - students in an act do not need a ticket, but those watching their student will need a ticket.

SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN: We desire to honor those students who have worked hard to present an act by respectfully watching their acts. We ask that students either stay with their act coordinator while preparing for their time on stage (either in the Fireside Room or Berean room), or they sit with their parents rather than freely roaming around the building for their safety.

FOOD - meal and dessert tickets will be available for purchase when you purchase your show tickets. Volunteers eat free!
