Center Stage: Purduettes Camp - Day 5
Friday is finally here! The ladies are already dressed and ready to go as they start out the morning with a quick rehearsal to run through the songs they will perform this afternoon.
The ladies show their excitement as they begin the show in a surround to sing the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Afterwards, the ladies happily joined senior Ali Norman onstage to sing “I’ve Got the Music in Me.”
The women proudly show off the choreography that they perfected during the week and strike a pose during “Brand New You.”
Sophomore Andrew Kasha plays the bass while the ladies sing “Blessings.”
Jeff directs the ladies as they sing “Wouldn’t Trade it for the World.” This spiritual song has become a new favorite among the women.
Senior Marissa Williams sings how “This Can’t Be Love” as she serenades a special member of the audience.
The specialties portion of the show was very well received by the audience! Here, the Holy Cowgirls entertain with their “TV Medley” of various Western TV show theme songs.
The ladies close out their portion of the show with the ever-loved “Armed Forces Medley.” Here, an audience member stands while the song of his Armed Forces unit is sung by the ladies.
As the Glee Club finished up their set, the ladies rejoined the men to sing “There Will Always Be A Song” and “Hail Purdue!” to close out the show.
Daily Student Perspective
“Today was the last day of Purduette camp. 7AM came early and right from the start we were rehearsing choreography. I finally felt confident in our dances! After spending the week at Camp Tecumseh, my fellow new women and I were so excited to perform our first show. I was nervous when we all lined up for our run-in, but everything went extremely well. The show was incredible! All the girls did an amazing job and I feel that we really reached out to our audience. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. We even performed with the Glee Club for our last song. I loved every minute of camp, especially this first show. After bonding with the girls and seeing the audience’s joyful reaction, I finally felt like a true Purduette.”
