ABOUT BROADWAY BOUND KIDS At Broadway Bound Kids our mission is to inspire and empower young lives through the arts by creating a nurturing and stress-free environment where kids will gain confidence, make friends, express themselves, and find a place where they feel a sense of belonging and acceptance. All of the proceeds from this event will help support our FREE Saturday program, school based performing arts residencies, community based workshops, summer programs, master classes with Broadway professionals, full scale musical productions, and trips to see Broadway shows. Your support will help us make sure that all kids have access to these life changing programs regardless of their financial resources.
HOW DOES THE BROADWAY BEE WORK? The Broadway Bee is a hilarious adult spelling bee competition between the Broadway community, (where cheating is encouraged and drinking is allowed), hosted by Rebecca Feldman and Jay Reiss, the original creators of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” The more money each team raises, the more "cheats" (or lifelines) the speller gets to help them win the Bee! All proceeds benefit Broadway Bound Kids, an NYC arts education non-profit. Our mission to inspire and empower young lives through the performing arts.
THE SPELLERS: 12 Broadway performers will be spelling in an exciting competition for the coveted Broadway Bee trophy.
THE TEAMS: Each speller will have a support team of 10-15 people. Anyone can join a team: Broadway cast members, friends, family, fans, and Broadway Bound Kids supporters. If team members raise $500, they get a FREE ticket to the Broadway Bee. It’s like a pledge-a-thon! But, instead of jogging or biking, we’re spelling.
CHEATS: Cheats are like “lifelines” - spellers will purchase cheats with the funds raised by their teams. Cheats include opportunities to ask the audience, look in the dictionary, or perform a challenge that the judges choose. Ultimately, all of the funds support Broadway Bound Kids.
