It was like a scene out of Glee! University of Michigan Musical Theater students now have a viral video. 

 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry gets the story from the chair of U-M's Musical Theater department, Brent Wagner. 

Some University of Michigan musical theatre students were having a graduation party in Ann Arbor last weekend and a mini musical broke out!  The students, some with plates of food in their hands began singing a recent arrangement of "The Victors" the U of M fight song. 

A proud parent of one of the students took a video and posted it on Facebook.  At first, the chair of the University's Musical Theatre Department asked that it be removed because they plan to perform it next week in New York.

But he has since changed his mind and the video has been viewed nearly 700,000 times already! Take a look for yourself:
