Rules & Guidelines

Each organization is limited to ONE act. The Homecoming Steering Committee reserves the right to classify each act as it sees fit.

The time limit for each act will be FIVE minutes. Acts are limited to 20 performers and one stage manager (to coordinate the performance). Prop limitations will be discussed at the auditions. The entries will be judged by a five-member committee consisting of UW-W faculty, staff, alums, and students.

At the audition, groups will need to perform their complete act once. Costumes and props are not required. The Variety Show is limited to 20 acts. Groups will be dropped from the line-up for inappropriate acts, a lack of planning, or overall level of quality.

Groups providing recorded music/accompaniment of any kind must submit it on one CD or 60 minute cassette on the day after the audition, October 1, by 12:00PM (noon). CDs are preferred. They will be converted for use in the show. No stop/start of supplied music will be allowed.

All acts selected from the audition process will be required to perform at the dress rehearsal on Sunday, October 7, at 12:00PM (noon), at the Whitewater Armory. Acts must be performance ready (props not required, costumes are required). All technical needs (lighting, sound, smoke machines) and a rough idea of the stage layout will be noted at this time. The dress rehearsal will be videotaped.
