RUTLAND – Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum, Rutland’s very own children’s museum currently expanding into the Energy Innovation Center on Merchants Row, is excited to finally return to The Paramount Theatre stage Saturday, April 29 at 6 p.m. After two years of a virtual version of the Lip Sync Battle, Wonderfeet is excited to bring this event back to the live stage. Teams of local residents will lift spirits and show off our vibrant community with costumes, music and choreography that have to be seen to be believed.
Past Lip Sync Battles have featured teams from the Rutland City Fire Department, the Regional Ambulance Corps, Rutland Regional Medical Center, and area businesses while the Virtual Lip Sync Battle celebrated the participation of area schools.
This year, competing teams will gear up for a night of determination, sheer talent and fun. Judges award points for accuracy, creativity, and choreography to select a Judge’s Choice winner. The audience will participate by text-to-vote to select a winning team for Audience Choice. With much anticipation and preparation, these teams promise to put on a great show and work hard for your votes.
In addition to excitement around the return to a live event format, this year’s event celebrates the opening of the new and expanded Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum that will take place in early May (it’s been closed through March and April as it completes the move). Audiences will even be treated to a video sneak peak of the new museum and exhibits.
“Whether or not you have young kids who love Wonderfeet, this event is guaranteed to be a fun night for everyone in the audience — and onstage, too. It’s about the community celebrating this place that makes Rutland special and doing it in a fun and creative way, the same way Rutland does everything!” said Katye Munger, events and marketing chair for Wonderfeet.
“Wonderfeet was born from our community’s creativity and passion. This event just showcases that same energy. We’re thankful that so many of our community partners are able to let go of their adult worries and inhibitions and perform with the same reckless abandon that kids do!” said Danielle Monroe, Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum executive director.
Team selection is going on now through Monday, March 27. There is still one open spot for an interested business or community group. Interested teams should email Danielle Monroe, email@example.com.
All proceeds from the event benefit Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum. For more information visit: WonderfeetKidsMuseum.org.
