Do you want to be a part of an Oklahoma City Thunder game? The players do the work on court, of course, and by now, most know all about mascot Rumble the Bison. But it takes a significant number of people to put on the game night entertainment show. Here are a few of those groups, with details on how you can audition.
01 of 05
Members of Oklahoma City's dance team are chosen each summer. In addition to performing at games, the Thunder Girls squad makes community appearances throughout the season. Auditions are open to all women 18 years or older. Click to get more information on the audition process and this season's squad.

The name pretty much tells you all you need to know here. The Thunder organization looks not only for drumming talent but also a certain amount of "showmanship." Drummers perform at games but also elsewhere at spots such as the Oklahoma State Fair. Look for 2017-2018 auditions to be held toward the end of July.

The organization calls the Storm Chasers the team's "official interactive squad." Really what that means is they perform during breaks such as timeouts and promotions, keeping the crowd engaged and excited. Like others on this list, Storm Chasers also make appearances around the community. Prospective members, at least 18 years old, should have physical talents in areas such as tumbling and dancing. 2016-2017 team auditions are Saturday, July 29 at the INTEGRIS Blue Development Center in Edmond. Register online.

But what about the kids, right? While one has to be 18 for all of the previous groups, the Rain Drops are the Thunder's junior dance team, made up of dancers ages 7-12. Monthly dues are required for members, but they get professional instruction, t-shirt, tickets to games and more. Auditions for 2017 are at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the INTEGRIS Blue Development Center in Edmond. Pre-registration should be completed online.Continue to 5 of 5 below.

National Anthem Performers
As you can probably imagine, a lot of people, both locally and nationally, would love to perform the national anthem at a Thunder game. So the organization does not hold live auditions. Of course, that doesn't mean they won't consider you. Submit performance resume and audition materials by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to:
Oklahoma City Thunder
