ELLSWORTH - The Grand, downtown Ellsworth's historic 1938 art deco theatre, announces the line-up of local contestants for the first ever 'Grand Mouth Off Lip Sync Battle 2016,' a fundraising event for The Grand on Saturday, April 9, 2016, at 7 p.m. Ticket prices for the Grand Mouth Off are $15 Adults/Seniors and $10 Youth (12 and under) for reserved seating. The event is sponsored by PCT Communications.

You've seen 'Lip Sync Battle' on SPIKE TV? Well, now local businesses and organizations will compete to show their moves as they lip sync to popular tunes as a fundraiser for The Grand. The Grand's Board of Directors will open the event with their own version of the 'Muppets Show Theme.' Each team will then compete against other businesses and perform to popular tunes. Lip Sync teams will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges including Laura Smith, morning anchor ABC 7 & Fox 22, Chris Popper of Townsquare Media and Drew Myers from 'The Crown Vics.' The audience votes with their dollars giving to a bucket brigade of volunteers provided by Bangor Savings Bank. Top teams move to the finals and perform a new song for the audience and judges. The winner is the team with the highest combination of judges' scores and donations to the Bucket Brigade. The show is hosted by actor, director and face-maker Robin Jones of The Grand. Local businesses and organizations participating are:

Maine Coast Memorial Hospital

Stanley Subaru

Bar Harbor Bank & Trust

Downeast Y - Early Learning Center

Machias Savings Bank

Rockett Computer

Ellsworth Fire Department



There is still room for another business or two to compete, so if you are interested in performing and helping The Grand, please contact the box office for more information.
