Stuyvesant’s SING! is a unique musical event with a history of excellence, but behind that prestigious reputation lies a world of corruption. SING! whistleblowers stole documents detailing SING! 2022’s expenses, which revealed a pattern of SING! directors abusing funds for personal gain. We tried to dig up receipts from previous years but came to a dead end when an anonymous informant told us that the receipts were ritually burned at the end of every SING! season. However, we used our connections with SophFrosh SING!’s assistant Costumes director Michelle Huang (who, by the way, is super hot and funny and deserves all your money) to save a few receipts to publish.

Note: To clarify, “Toddlers” refers to SophFrosh, “Old Clowns” refers to Juniors, and “The STD Sages” refers to Seniors. The insulting nicknames describing the other grades imply that these records were curated by Senior scriptwriters, who couldn’t think of any jokes besides those insulting their competitors.
