Land O’Frost Offers Consumers the Chance to “Be a Star on Broadway”
LANSING, Ill., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Land O’Frost, the nation’s largest family-owned packaged lunch meat company, wants homes across America to be “alive with the sound of music” by offering young performers a chance be discovered by top Broadway professionals. Beginning January 23, singers and dancers can submit a video to the Land O’Frost “Be a Star on Broadway” campaign for an opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime to New York City to attend Camp Broadway®, Broadway’s leading producer of musical theater programs for theater-loving kids of all ages.
Hosted in partnership with Camp Broadway, Land O’Frost’s “Be a Star on Broadway” enables the entire family to get in the act by showcasing their singing, dancing and acting talents in a short musical-theater-inspired video performing one of five iconic Broadway songs: Give My Regards to Broadway (Little Johnny Jones), Oklahoma (Oklahoma!), Do-Re-Mi (The Sound of Music), All Shook Up (All Shook Up), and Steal Your Rock ‘n’ Roll (Memphis, the 2010 Tony® Award-winning Best Musical). From January 23 through March 4, videos will be published on Land O’Frost’s interactive community website, LandOMoms.com, and will be voted on by the public from March 5 through March 25.
Two winners will be selected from the video entries: one by popular vote and the other by Camp Broadway’s panel of Broadway professionals. Videos will be judged on originality and creativity, quality of vocal performance and entertainment value.
“We are excited to turn the Broadway spotlight on our consumers and their families, giving them a chance to shine,” said Keith Hill, brand manager of Land O’Frost. “We are proud to make high quality lunch meats and to bring a taste of Broadway to our consumers. Camp Broadway is a great partner to get families involved in the arts through a hands-on Broadway experience.”
