Burns, a senior theater major, said that students can sign up for the auditions at the LSC flee market from February 29 to March 9. Students can also have walk-on auditions as space allows.

Four student judges will select 10 to 15 acts for the show. Students should present original, energetic and well-practiced performances, Burns said. CSU’s Got Talent is presented by Young Producers OrganizationRam Events and Ram Productions and is organized completely by students.

The show will have five judges, including President Tony Frank and other University faculty members, and will be on April 1 in the LSC Grand Ballroom.
