Campus Life Spring Sing
57th Annual Spring Sing
Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The show starts at 6:30pm. Doors open at 5:15pm.
At Spring Sing, Westmont students from each residence hall produce Broadway-style skits and compete for prizes and bragging rights. The longest-running tradition on campus, this event involves more students than any other Westmont activity. Performers in the 56th annual Spring Sing will use song, dance and an occasional faculty/staff guest appearance to tell a story about this year’s theme.

Where can I buy a ticket?
Tickets are sold through AXS.com or at The Bowl Box Office. If you live in the Santa Barbara area, you are able to purchase tickets directly from the Santa Barbara Bowl box office.
Using cash at the Bowl Box Office is the most cost efficient way to buy tickets.
When is the Box Office open?
The Bowl Box Office hours are 11am to 6pm, M-F. The Box Office will also be open beginning at 3pm the day of the show.
Please note: The Bowl Box Office does not accept telephone orders.
Didn't Westmont used to sell tickets on campus?
Yes. We used to sell tickets on campus but due to a variety of reasons we are now selling only through AXS.com or The Bowl Box Office.
Will Spring Sing sell out?
With a venue the size of the Santa Barbara Bowl we do not expect to sell out of seats and you should be able to buy general admission tickets on the day of the show from the Box Office.
But we do anticipate the reserved seats to sell out…so order yours early if you’d like a reserved seat!
Why is there a price range on the tickets?
Due to multiple ways of purchasing tickets (through AXS.com or at the Box Office) and through different means (cash/credit) there are various fees associated with each scenario. Please note: there is a handling fee for every AXS order, regardless of number of tickets ordered. Neither Westmont nor the Santa Barbara Bowl receives any of the fee incurred by using AXS.
Using cash at the Bowl Box Office is the most cost-efficient way to buy tickets.
Where will I be sitting if I purchase a general admission ticket?
Take a look at the seating chart. Your general admission ticket will allow you to sit anywhere in sections A-I. This is marked "reserved" on the chart because it is reserved at other performances. For Spring Sing, this is our general admission area. Keep in mind that with the exception of a handful of seats, this section is first come first served! Doors open at 5:15pm and people arrive early!
Where will I be sitting if I purchase a Preferred/Reserved ticket?
These tickets save you a seat in the preferred seating section. Take a look at the seating chart. Your reserved ticket will save you a seat in Sections J - O.
Why buy a reserved ticket?
Reserved tickets give you the freedom to arrive to the show minutes before and still have a great seat.
Where do I pick up my tickets?
Tickets purchased through AXS.com can either be emailed, mailed to your home (fee applies) or held at will call (fee applies). Alternatively, you can purchase tickets directly from The Bowl Box Office.
Where can I park?
There are three parking options:
1) Street Parking: keep in mind that parking is limited and you might need to walk a bit. Please do not block any driveways or park in “no parking” zones.
2) Santa Barbara High School (700 E. Anapamu Street) for $15. It is conveniently located across the street from the venue. Most people do this.
3) Bowl Parking Lot Pass for $20. Spots are limited and can be purchased in advance or at the Bowl lot if space is still available. Bowl Parking Lot passes will go on sale at 12noon on February 24th. As of 1:30pm on Saturday, April 1st the online reservation is closed and spots can be purchased directly at the Bowl lot.
Why should I buy a Bowl Parking Lot Pass?
Reserved seating is great if you just want to guarantee a good seat. A Bowl Parking Lot Pass will give you the luxury of showing up later than the crowd and having a parking spot reserved. Grab dinner before the show, pull into a saved parking spot, and go find your reserved seat!
Can I buy more than one parking pass?
No. The system will only allow you to purchase one parking pass at a time.
Where do I pick up my parking pass?
There will be no physical parking pass. When you order a Bowl Parking Lot Pass you will receive a confirmation email and your name will be added to the parking list. Please be ready to show ID upon arriving to The Bowl so we may check for your name on the parking list.
Where do I register for Parents Weekend?
Simply click here to register for Parent’s Weekend. You’ll be glad you did!
Is there food at Spring Sing? Should we eat dinner beforehand?
Yes to both! Limited concessions will be sold at the show.
Will DVDs be available the night of the show?
What time do the doors open?
The doors open at 5:15pm.
What time does the show begin?
The show begins at 6:30pm.
What time will the show end?
We expect the show to last for about three hours. Due to county ordinances we are required to be done by 10pm.
What else do I need to know?
It gets cold when the sun goes down. Bring some layers or a blanket.
Do NOT bring coolers, large bags, folding chairs, or picnics.
What if it rains?
The show must (and will) go on. Bring a rain jacket! But kindly refrain from using umbrellas during the show.
In the unlikely event that weather interrupts the show, we will communicate any necessary information.
BRING HOME THE SHOW ON DVD
