Ashley Roberts, a Phoenix-bred member of The Pussycatt Dolls dancing (and "singing") squad will script a routine for the Suns Dancers audition, which is scheduled for Saturday. Roberts, who reportedly spilled the beans on the group's impending breakup a few weeks back (something their spokesman denied), is making the journey back from Europe, where the group is on tour, for the occasion.
If you're interested in joining the team -- or making a fool of yourself while meeting Roberts -- you can still registert. Registration for the tryouts begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday in the Casino Arizona Pavilion at US Airways Center. You must be at least 18 and bring a photo and resume. You also have to attend one "prep class" which you can register for at Suns.com or by calling 602-379-7927.
