Show Regulations

We'd love to have you perform in our shows!  Here's a quick look at the guidelines for participating. 

1. All performers should be either current BYU-I students (on or off-track) or a spouse of a current BYU-I student.
2. In order to allow more students the opportunity to perform, a performer will be allowed to perform in three Talent Activities Shows per semester. (Exceptions may apply if there are limited students auditioning.)...

3. Each individual can audition and perform only once in a show.  (Persons can only be in one group.)
4. Every member of the group must be at the audition in order to perform in the event.
5. If selected, performers must use the act with which they auditioned.
6. Lyrics  may not be altered on any cover song to replace an inappropriate word.    
7. A song with inappropriate lyrics or content, regardless of whether that part of the song is used or if it is instrumental, will not be allowed!  This includes mash-ups.  Songs should be BYU-Idaho honor code appropriate.  As to the appropriateness of your content, please use the For the Strength of the Youth pamphlet as your guide. The appropriateness of your lyrics and song will be subject to the discretion of the judges. Get approval from the Manager prior to auditions!
8. All performers should comply with BYU-I classroom dress and grooming standards. Hats will only be allowed as part of a costume in a themed show. No full face painting or masks.
9. No suggestive moves or kissing on stage.
10. Performance clothes should be worn at sound checks the day of the performance.
11. Electric guitars are acceptable for most shows, but must hook into house system.  Individual amplifiers are not allowed except in certain circumstances. Can use reverb, chorus, distortion pedals appropriately.
12. Performer should arrive at auditions with signed Rule Sheets and Information Sheets filled out. Arriving late may cause performers to forfeit their audition. For special needs or time changes, please work with the event Manager.
13. If selected, at least one representative from each act needs to attend a mandatory performer's meeting prior to the show in order to perform in the show.
14. All performers must attend sound checks, which will be scheduled within two - three hours prior to the performance.
