Hippodrome seeking students to showcase their talents

Hippodrome is a celebration of the arts and features the creative talents of Shockers.

Students interested in participating in Hippodrome can do so by either creating a skit, showcasing a talent or emceeing the show. This year, Hippodrome will feature these performances in the skit and talent competition at 7 p.m. on March 31 in the CAC Theater. The deadline to apply is Monday, March 6.

Groups participating in the skit competition will perform a 15 to 20 minute scripted performance with the use of this year’s theme: Superheroes. The top three winners of the skit competition will receive awards for first, second and third place, as well as individual awards for best actor, best use of mystery item and spirit.

The talent competition will be hosted in conjunction with the skit competition. Performers will take the stage between skit performances, and first, second and third place winners will take home cash prizes up to $150.

Hippodrome competitors and performers must be current WSU students.
