You heard right, What the Dickens Orlando is offering a cash prize of $5,000 to the best flash mob video that is built around a song from a musical inspired by the works of Charles Dickens. Examples include “Who Will Buy” or “Food, Glorious Food” from Oliver! and “Thank you Very Much” from Scrooge. To be eligible, a video cannot be longer than 7 minutes, and must be posted on YouTube by 5 pm Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5) on Friday, December 5, 2014. A panel of judges will select the winning video based upon overall performance quality, audience reaction, visual impact and use of the physical space by the mob.
What the Dickens Orlando is a celebration of the 202nd anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens–his life, work, times and issues by three dozen arts and cultural organizations in Orlando, Florida who are presenting more than 202 event-days of related performances, exhibitions and activities throughout Orlando in 2014.
