Showtime at Central takes over McConnell Auditorium on Feb. 23

Step on Stage, it’s Showtime

Free | Open to the Public

Wildcats! The CWU Black Student Union's Showtime at Central will be here soon. In honor of the famous amateur show from Harlem’s Apollo Theatre, Showtime at Central aims to showcase Central talent while paying tribute to Showtime’s history. This year’s host, a comedian and CWU Alum, will be Quincy Jones. He’s not only hilarious, he’s dedicated to making his name known by recently accomplishing 1,000 sets in one year. 

Join contestants as they enjoy their three minutes of fame on the McConnell stage. Bring your boos and your cheers, because if an act doesn’t impress the crowd within the first 30 seconds, all bets are off and they could be potentially “swept” off stage.

The crowd will decide on the winner through their praise and applause at the end of the night, and in between performances will have the opportunity to answer questions on a variety of African American history.
