In these challenging and uncertain times, Broadway Bound Kids has reinvented its annual fundraising event.
The Fifth Annual Broadway Bee will feature couple Paige Davis (Chicago) and Patrick Page (Hadestown) as they face-off in this year’s competition. Davis has competed for five years straight and is the current reigning champ.

The All-Star cast of Broadway spellers and shows will include: Sasha Hutchings (Hamilton), Brita Filter (RuPaul's Drag Race), Seth Rudetsky (Stars in the House), Michael Park (Dear Evan Hansen), Jessie Hooker-Bailey (Waitress), Kim Exum (The Book of Mormon), Susie Carroll (Mean Girls), Afra Hines (Summer: The Donna Summer Musical), and Lee Aaron Rosen (A Soldier’s Play).
What is the Broadway Bee? Well, it’s a hilarious adult spelling bee featuring cast members from 10 hit Broadway shows who compete in this annual live event. Cheer on your favorite cast member while they raise funds to provide a wide range of performing arts education opportunities for youth, regardless of their financial resources.
Fundraising teams are now available at broadwayboundkids.net/broadway-bee. Join a team and help your favorite speller fundraise and win the bee. Anyone from anywhere can join a team and be ‘in the zoom where it happens’ with Broadway stars!
Inspired by the Broadway hit The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and conceived by the musical’s creators, Rebecca Feldman and Jay Reiss will once again serve as hosts. Once the Bee begins, ten Broadway teams will pull out all the stops to get their words right and complete hilarious challenges. The more funds each team raises before and during the event, the more lifelines or “cheats” they earn to help them win the coveted Bee trophy.
All proceeds from the evening will benefit Broadway Bound Kids, an arts education nonprofit that brings the performing arts to students from New York City, and beyond.
