Auditions for Bucks Entertainment Network begin week of August 6
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks are looking for talented and energetic performers to entertain fans at Fiserv Forum during the 2018-19 season.
Auditions for the Bucks Entertainment Network start with the Rim Rockers at 5 p.m. on August 6. Other auditions beginning this week include the Grand Dancers, Young Bucks, and Milwaukee Bucks Dancers. Auditions for Bucks Hoop Troop and Bucks Beats will be held in early September.
"I'm actually terrible at basketball. So you don't have to be good at it. I was more of a backyard gymnast, trampoline, high bar, parkour, some free running on the side," said Rim Rocker David "Shifty" St. Pierre.
St. Pierre is a 12 year veteran of the Rim Rockers and looks forward to seeing the new talent at auditions.
"To be honest, I like the falls and wipe outs on the first day because no one knows what's going on, those are fun to watch."
All auditions will be held at Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee. Free parking is available in the parking structure on the corner of Sixth Street and Highland Avenue. All participants should enter Fiserv Forum via the Johnson Controls Entrance on the corner of Sixth Street and Juneau Avenue, except for the Young Bucks who will enter through the main entrance on the east side of the arena. More information on the auditions, including qualifications for each team, can be found at
