THE STORY:

@JonahPlatt

Thank you for coming to my page! The entire foundation for my confidence as a professional performer came from the incredible drama teachers I had as a young child in my after-school drama program. I learned the basics of the craft, was empowered by my instructors to be a leader onstage and off, enjoyed the warm companionship of other theater kids like me, and quite literally found my voice. I am so excited to be able to support Broadway Bound Kids and hope you will do the same!

ABOUT THE BEE

THE BROADWAY BEE is the new and exciting annual competition between the Broadway community. It’s a hilarious adult spelling bee (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.”

 

Proceeds will benefit Broadway Bound Kids, a NYC based arts education organization providing performing arts opportunities to under-served students.

 

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 and camps, 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. Click HERE for a video about us.

 

HOW DOES THE BROADWAY BEE WORK?

 

THE SPELLERS: Ten different Broadway performers have been selected as spellers for each of the ten different teams. These performers will be on stage representing their team/show, spelling words and CHEATING.

 

THE TEAMS: Each Speller is backed by a team of 10-15 people. The spellers and teams are raising money to purchase cheats, which the Speller will use to win the BROADWAY BEE.

 

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, ask their team, or perform a challenge that the judges choose. Ultimately - all of the funds will go to Broadway Bound Kids to support their free programs and student scholarships.

 

THE WINNER: Spellers will be eliminated as words are misspelled, and a winner will be crowned. Our winner will take home bragging rights and a one-of-a-kind prize - and invited to defend their crown in 2015.

 

THE HOSTS: The original creators of Tony Award winning show, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” Rebecca Feldman and Jay Reiss (who also played the Vice Principal) will host and judge the event by using a combination of scripted material and improvisation to lead the spellers through the hilarious competition.
