Students Rush to Purchase Scandals Tickets

Students packed Molly Shi Boren Ballroom in Oklahoma Memorial Union Wednesday in hopes of purchasing tickets for this year's Scandals.

The tickets went on sale 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, and were met with a large crowd. Seperate tickets were sold based on the day of the event, certain days being more expensive than others. Out of all the groups that tried out, only six were chosen to perform in the show. The theme for this year is "One for the History Book." 

For the past couple of months, fraternities, sororities and other student organizations have been vigorously preparing for Scandals try outs which were held Feb. 15. Mark Salvie, energy management senior and Scandals director, said that this year was extremely competitive.

"It's extremely competitive," Salvie said. "We had to be very fair in how we do all the scoring and production points."

Salvie said they will sell the remaining tickets on April 2 before the Thursday show. The show will be part of parents weekend.
