What is Primetime Productions? How do I get involved?

Primetime Productions is a student organization funded by the Housing and Residence Life Office.  Its purpose is to provide a variety of free, on-campus entertainment that builds community throughout the residence halls at Northern Michigan University.

Becoming a part of Primetime is not only fun and a great opportunity to meet new people and exciting performers, it's also a great way to learn the ins and outs of how to put on a show and work with talent agents.

What does Primetime do?

  • Primetime members work hard at fulfilling your on-campus entertainment needs
  • Provide safe late-night events for students
  • Sponsor BINGO nights, euchre nights, casino nights, comedians, mentalists, hypnotists, open mic nights and more …
  • Provide opportunities for students to work with performers, plan, promote and put on campus events for students living on-campus
  • Attend national or regional conferences to preview acts, meet performers and agents
