Each year, Broadway Bound Kids partners with the Broadway community and the creators of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee to present our Annual Broadway Bee! In 2020, the Bee was presented virtually for the first time.
What's the Broadway Bee?
A hilarious VIRTUAL spelling Bee between Broadway performers including special guest performances!
Rebecca Feldman and Jay Reiss, the original creators of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
The all-star cast of Broadway spellers in the 2020 Bee included:
Sasha Hutchings - Hamilton Paige Davis - Chicago Brita Filter - RuPaul's Drag Race Seth Rudetsky - Stars in the House Michael Park - Dear Evan Hansen Jessie Hooker-Bailey - Waitress Kim Exum - Book of Mormon Cody Jamison Strand - Book of Mormon Susie Carroll - Mean Girls Afra Hines - Summer: The Donna Summer Musical Lee Aaron Rosen - A Soldier’s Play Patrick Page - Hadestown
Anyone from anywhere can join a team and fundraise. The more funds each team raises, the more lifelines their speller will get to win the Bee!
All proceeds benefit our emergency relief fund to counteract the losses from COVID-19, and to continue providing equitable access to the arts. Our virtual programs provide connection, community and creativity through arts education to kids all over the country during these uncertain times.
