To enter, fans should submit a video of their rendition of Jule Styne and Leo Robin's "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" before April 27. Videos should be posted on City Center's Facebook page by clicking on the video contest icon.

The winner of the contest will also receive tickets to the show, dinner for two at the top-rated Beacon restaurant, a poster signed by the entire cast and a complete set of limited edition Gentlemen Prefer Blondes merchandise.

Hilty, who also stars in the NBC musical drama "Smash," will play Lorelei Lee, the diamond-loving blonde made famous by Carol Channing.

Directed by John Rando with music direction by Rob Berman and choreography by Randy Skinner, performances are scheduled for May 9-13.

Set in the Roaring Twenties, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, according to press notes, "follows the madcap adventures of the original 'dumb blonde,' Lorelei Lee, as she sets sail for Europe with her best friend Dorothy Shaw." Based on Anita Loos' best-selling novel, the musical has a book by Loos and Joseph Fields, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Leo Robin.
