Sod Poodles hosting game day entertainment auditions

Amarillo Sod Poodles
The Amarillo Sod Poodles will be hosting public auditions for National Anthem performances, Public Address Announcers, On-Field Emcees, and Mascot Entertainers for the inaugural 2019 season on Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Gilvin Broadcast Center at Amarillo College (Panhandle PBS) located at 2408 S Jackson St, Amarillo, TX 79109.

Soloists, duets, trios, and quartets are invited to audition "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" for a chance to perform during the 2019 season at Hodgetown. Two winning contestants will be determined by a panel of guest judges, but many names will be noted for opportunities to perform on a date during the season. The two winning contestants will be given an opportunity to perform on either Opening Night or Independence Day.

All vocal performances must be a cappella or accompanied by a personal instrument and only traditional renditions of songs will be considered for selection. Each performer may audition for either "The Star-Spangled Banner" or "God Bless America" and will be considered for either song.

Public address announcer, on-field emcee, and mascot auditions will be held at the same time as National Anthem auditions. Candidates for these roles will be provided with instructions, materials and/or scripts on-site after checking in. Individuals auditioning for the mascot position must be between five-foot-eight to five-foot-ten inches in height for the costume fit (please wear workout-type or athletic attire). Mascot experience with a high school, college and/or a sports team is preferred.

To request an audition time for any of these categories, please contact Sierra Todd through e-mail at with which position you are applying for in the subject line.

Walk-up auditions on Saturday, February 23 are welcome but are not guaranteed and will be taken on a first-come, first served basis, as time permits. To ensure a performance slot, contacting ahead of time is recommended since time slots are also limited.
