BroadwayWorld.com is giving one lucky winner the chance to entertain the pre-show audience in the grand lobby at the historical Chicago Theatre prior to a performance of Banana Shpeel, the new Cirque du Soleil show on December 9 at 8pm.
Interested contestants have the opportunity to sing, dance, or laugh their way to the theater by submitting a 60-second video to be voted on by their peers. In keeping with the vaudeville-inspired theme of Banana Shpeel, participants are encouraged to display a madcap bit of slapstick, an over-the-top comedic routine, or singing, dancing or performing a one-of-a-kind act with original creative content. Videos will be judged on creativity, raw talent, originality, humor, spirit and total “wow-factor.” To enter, participants should upload a 60-second video to YouTube.com and fill out the entry form at http://www.broadwayworld.com/shpeel.cfm.
The lucky winner will receive two complimentary tickets to Banana Shpeel and will enjoy accommodations courtesy of Delta Airlines and theWit, Doubletree Hotel in Chicago on December 9. Complimentary airfare to Chicago will be provided only if winner is from out-of-town. 25 runners up will each receive two complimentary tickets for Banana Spheel on December 9.
The contest runs until November 30 and is open to anyone 18 or older (under 18 with parental permission) in the United States. For complete terms and conditions visit www.broadwayworld.com/shpeelrules.cfm.
Happy Birthday: Paula Vogel (b. 1951) & George S. Kaufman (1889-1961)
