FredNats holding emcee, PA, mascot, anthem auditions
Emcee and PA try-outs will take place Saturday, Feb. 29, and national anthem and mascot auditions will be held on Saturday, March 21.
Both will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in UMW’s Hurley Convergence Center Digital Auditorium.
Emcee auditions will include a script-read of game introductions and in-game entertainment segments. PA auditions will include script-reads of roster lineups and in-game sponsor advertisements.
The FredNats also need dozens of performers of the anthem, sung prior to each of 70 home games. Hopefuls will sing the anthem in full, in a cappella-style, without musical accompaniment.
The team also is looking for alternates to wear its mascot suit for the 2020 season. Candidates should arrive ready to rock a provided suit and run a pumped-up routine of crowd engagement.
Prepared skits are welcomed and encouraged but not required.
Anyone interested in attending tryouts is encouraged to RSVP to the Facebook event pages titled “FredNats Emcee & PA Auditions 2020” and “FredNats National Anthem & Mascot Auditions 2020.”
More details regarding scheduling on the day of auditions will be distributed at a later date.
