    Warning:  Major Plot Twist Ahead!
    At the end of the show, BEFORE the winner is announced, 10 audience members will be chosen from a hat that willing participants have added their names to at intermission.  These 10 audience members will come up on stage and have a dance battle hosted by our MC.  The audience chooses the winner and the winner chooses the team this money will go.  The team that raises the most money wins, so this pot of money could change the outcome entirely!  This is a great way to support the DDC and add to the drama to this exciting fundraiser!
