Auditions to star in a television commercial will be held during the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off on Victorian Square.
The commercial will be for Clark Pest Control, and the audition booth will be set up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 5-6 near the movie theater fountain and kids' area.
Participants will each create their own commercial in front of a green screen that will later appear as a backdrop of a residential home or outdoor scene. Props will be provided, but contestants can get creative and ad-lib a 30-second spot, ending with the slogan, "Clark, We Need You!"
Once all of the auditions in Reno have been completed, a panel of judges will review the tapes and select one regional finalist.
Auditions have already been held on the central coast in California, and more will be held in the Sacramento area. A finalist will be selected from each of those auditions as well.
Once all of the auditions are completed, judges will review the three finalists' auditions and select the grand-prize winner, who will star in a new commercial.

All auditions taped during the cook-off will be posted on the Clark Pest Control Web site following the event.
