Come show us your musical talents and get a chance to move on to the final round at the end of the month where finalist will compete for $150 cash and three hours of recording time at Aggie Central Station!


- Each artist/group gets 3 songs or 10 minutes to perform. If we have more than 9 groups signed up, this goes down to 2 songs and seven minutes.

- Electrified instruments are allowed, but only if they go direct or have small amplifiers, in which case they will be turned down to minimum. No full bands. The general rule is, if it can’t be set up in 3 minutes or less, we don’t want it.

- We do not allow singers to sing to tracks, this isn’t karaoke. If you are a hip hop MC, you can use tracks but only if they are original and have no main vocals in them.

- Want to win? Bring lots of friends! However, they must stay until the end of the night to vote.

Everybody’s Hero: The Jackie Robinson Story

Everybody’s Hero: The Jackie Robinson Story
An inspirational story of a brave man’s struggle for equality.

When summer began in 1947, television was new, the sound barrier had not been broken and baseball was a white man’s game. By the fall, all that had changed. President Truman addressed the nation for the first time on TV, Chuck Yeager flew faster than any man ever had, and Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play major league baseball. It was no accident that Jackie Robinson was chosen to break the color barrier. There were plenty of good athletes in the Negro Leagues — some maybe even better than Jackie. But when Branch Rickey decided to add a black person to the Brooklyn Dodgers, he knew that individual had to be special.

He had to be strong enough to stand up to the teammates who would ridicule him, the pitchers who would throw at him and the fans who would threaten him. He had to be able to turn the other cheek, to show that he was the bigger man and to prove that he could be everybody’s hero. This new play with music by Mad River Theater Works shows the events that shaped Jackie Robinson’s character, his struggle to gain acceptance and the tremendous obstacles he overcame on his way to changing the face of our nation and our national pastime. An inspirational story of a brave man’s struggle for equality.

Warning: Recommended for age 8 and up.
