Peter Strobel, singing a rendition of a Johnny Cash song in tribute to Weird Al
Maya Mohr, improvising a dance routine titled “Coffee”
Austin Sinn, singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver
The audience was a quaint crowd but it was if as the auditorium was packed to its limit with the amount of cheering and support from fellow Doane students screaming for their brave friends on stage.
