We heard many people say that early January was a tough time to have the Lip Sync with rehearsals needing to take place around the holidays. We are looking to have the event sometime in February or early March, but a date has not yet been set. We are also looking to move the event back to Indian Crest for 2020 since the auditorium has been repaired from the electrical fire.
