MILLBURN — Paper Mill Playhouse has launched an online video contest entitled Hairspray’s Dance Invention to promote the first show of its 2010-2011 season, Hairspray, opening in September. Contestants will be challenged to come up with a new, original dance move to a music track that will be provided by Paper Mill Playhouse on its website, www.papermill.org.
The contest will run through FaceBook and video submissions will be accepted from July 19 until August 20. All contestants must be of at least 13 years of age to participate. The videos must use the music track provided by Paper Mill, be no longer than 30 seconds in duration, provide the contestant’s name, age, city, state and name of his or her dance invention.
From July 19 to Aug. 20, the public can vote for its favorite dance invention, and of the videos with the top number of votes, a team of judges at Paper Mill Playhouse will select eight finalists. The public will then vote again on the remaining eight finalists beginning on September 1st, and the overall winner, the contestant with the most votes, will be announced on September 26, 7pm, at the opening night performance of Hairspray.
All eight finalists will receive a four pack of tickets to the opening night of Hairspray at Paper Mill Playhouse on Sunday, September 26 at 7pm. In addition, the overall winner will receive four admissions to the cast party, and have his or her dance invention performed by Tracy Turnblad herself on stage.
