You know what I hate about kick-lines?! Absolutely nothing, fool! Kick-lines are amazing. And they have the ability to blast a mediocre musical moment into something worth blogging about!
Seriously…kick-lines are the cherry on my musical theater sundae.
That being said, in honor of A CHORUS LINE, Broadway In Chicago is holding a kick-line contest.
All you have to do is upload a video onto BIC’s Facebook of yourself doing your best rendition of an actual kick-line. Get creative, incorporate your friends, family, pets, puppets, whatever!
The videos will be judged by the fashion-savvy worker bees in the BIC Marketing Department…and they are a picky bunch, so the more outrageous, original, and awesome your kick-line is, the better your chances of winning the opening night grand prize package! Sidebar: Funky costumes earn instant bonus points!
What do you get if you win? Well, besides the opportunity to rub your stardom in everybody’s face, you also get four opening night tickets to see A CHORUS LINE, a cast recording, and a show poster! It’s like Christmas in April, y’all. TWO runners-up will also receive tickets to the opening night performance on April 15. That’s 3 sets of winners!
The deadline is 11:59 pm on April 14th, so if you aren’t already friends with BIC on Facebook, you best get on that. We promise not to poke you and send out a bunch of ridiculous application invites.
So good luck, you fabulous kick-liners! We hope you get it! (Get it?) Get it.
