ASU Athletics holds audition for halftime performances


September 25, 2008

Sun Devil Athletics invites you to show us your talent. On Oct. 8, ASU Athletics will hold an open audition seeking possible performers for halftime at athletic events including men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and gymnastics. Selected individuals/groups will have an opportunity to perform for 3-5 minutes, depending on the event.

All varieties of acts from both the local and campus communities are welcome to try out. We ask that performances not contain any singing or speaking elements. Past halftime shows have included break dancers, hip hop dancers, and martial arts demonstrations. We are looking for similar types of acts and more. Every individual/group should plan on wearing any costumes at the tryouts used in their live performances. If your routine requires music please bring it in CD format and a sound system will be provided. Acts must be family friendly and should be in good taste; this includes both the act itself, and the attire worn during the performance.

All performance group members will receive complimentary admission to the event they are performing at and discounted tickets may be available for family and friends. All ticket offers are subject to availability.

The auditions will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 8 from 7-10 p.m. at Wells Fargo Arena on the ASU Tempe Campus. For more information, or to reserve a time to audition, contact Drew Ossakow at dossakow@asu.edu or (480) 727-0623. Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis until all spaces are full, or noon, Oct. 8. If you cannot attend the tryout, but would still like an opportunity to perform at an ASU event, contact Drew to submit a DVD or video tape of your act.
