SHOW AUDITIONS SIGN-UP

WANT TO AUDITION TO BECOME A UMTV STAR? SIGN UP HERE!

Auditions will take place on Friday, September 6th in both studios. Please review the audition requirements below and SIGN UP AGAIN even if you had a slot previously. I know many of you were unable to book an audition last time. As a result, the windows have been extended and individual slots have been shortened from 15 to 10 minutes each. If all the slots are full, we will accept walk-in auditions, but please make every effort to book a scheduled time. In the "description" box of the form, please indicate which show(s) you are auditioning for at that time. This will allow the Executive Producers to prepare for your audition. Let Ben know if you have any questions at ble26@miami.edu. Thank you for your patience!!
