AND THE WINNER IS...

Today, Larry Bonoff appeared on three of Rhode Island's top radio stations and heard from an incredible number of WMT enthusiasts eager to tell their favorite theatre story and win a spot in the film. It was a tough decision to pick winners, but after the dust settled, the following individuals were recognized as victors in the "Go Under the Tent Movie Contest":
  • 92PRO-FM: Michael Stravato for his story about meeting the legendary man in black, Johnny Cash.
  • Lite 105: Donna Houle for her story about performing onstage as a child actor.
  • 630WPRO-FM/AM: Anthony Del Toro for his hilarious anecdote about Tom Jones' drinking glass.

Each winner will now be invited to our next filming session sometime next month. Thanks to EVERYONE who called in to the shows and participated in our contests. Thanks to our friends at 92PRO-FM, Lite 105, 630WPRO-FM/AM (especially the good folks at the Buddy Cianci Show). And congratulations to Michael, Donna, and Anthony!

Be a Part of the Film!

Been a busy, but exciting few weeks for the film. Lots going on, plenty to announce in time. For now though, thought you would be interested in a contest going on this week on April 16 with our friends at WPRO FM and AM, and the Buddy Cianci Show.

The “Go Under the Tent Movie Contest” is your opportunity to listen and win a chance to be in the forthcoming WMT documentary film. We asked for this in October at our press conference but we are making it official again now, and asking anyone and everyone who has a special memory or story about WMT to enter a contest, and possibly end up on the big screen! Maybe you met your future spouse, saw an incredible performance, or even graduated at the Tent. Whatever your connection to it may be, now is your chance to let the world know about it.

RULES
The rules for the “Go Under the Tent Movie Contest” are simple:

1. First, between now and noon on April 16 dust off your favorite Warwick Musical memory and turn it into a 2-minute story.
2. Then, tune in to the Buddy Cianci show on 630WPRO AM/FM starting at 10am on Thursday April 16.
3. When prompted, call in to Buddy’s show and a panel which will include Buddy and Larry Bonoff will listen to your story. At the end of the hour, the panel will vote, the story with the most votes (based on presentation and story quality) will be declared winner, and that individual will have his/her story filmed at the next production shoot in Rhode Island (date and location TBD).
4. Contestants should be available to call into the designated radio show on April 16 beginning at 10am.
5. While every effort will be made to include the winner’s story, final inclusion in the finished production will ultimately be at the discretion of the filmmakers.

Final thing to keep in mind is that if you submitted a story to me at brian@wmtmovie.com, it has been received and is being considered in another contest to run next week as well. More details on that contest will come shortly. But you can certainly try to call into Buddy's show as well.

Good luck!
