Are you interested in performing the National Anthem at a Mudcats game this season?

The Mudcats are holding open tryouts for National Anthem singers and pre-game entertainers from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 11th at Five County Stadium in Zebulon. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. on the third base side of the stadium. Auditions will be held on a first come, first served basis.

All singers, including solo acts or groups, wishing to perform the National Anthem at Five County Stadium before a game this season must audition at this tryout event. Those who have performed the "Star Spangled Banner" in previous years at a Mudcats game are also encouraged to audition again.

All auditions must be performed a cappella and on the field at Five County Stadium. There is no age requirement.

The pre-game entertainment talent search is open but not limited to dancing, singing, baton twirlers, the playing of a musical instrument, etc.

Pre-game acts or performances should be limited to three minutes or less. All acts will be considered for Mudcats pre-game or in-game entertainment purposes. Performers needing background music for their act should have a CD, mobile device or MP3 prepared in advance of their performance.

All performers with any further questions regarding this event are encouraged to call the Mudcats front office at (919) 269-2287, or email Becca Holtgreive at
