BWW Exclusive: Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell Sing 'The Gift I Wish For Every Year' on Disney Junior's VAMPIRINA

BroadwayWorld has the exclusive sneak-peek of the duet that Patti LuPone and Brian Stokes Mitchell will perform in this Friday's new episode of "Vampirina."

Watch the video below!

The song is a part of the episode "Desserter Mystery" in which the special cake that Vee makes for Nanpire's birthday goes missing, Vee, Demi and Gregoria set out to solve the mystery of the misplaced dessert.

Tony Award winners LuPone ("Evita") and Stokes Mitchell ("Kiss Me, Kate") return as Nanpire and Grandpop in the episode.

The Emmy and BAFTA Award-nominated "Vampirina" tells the story of Vampirina (aka Vee), a young vampire girl who is the new kid in town after her family moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania.

The series follows Vee as she faces the trials and tribulations of adjusting to unfamiliar surroundings, including making friends and attending a new school in the human world.

Blending spooky fun, heartfelt storytelling and Broadway-caliber music, each episode features two 11-minute stories with a new original song in each episode.

Broadway composers Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond ("The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes") are the series' songwriters and Layla Minoui ("Castle") is composer.

The "Vampirina" voice cast includes: Isabella Crovetti ("Colony") as Vampirina; James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek") as Boris; Lauren Graham ("Gilmore Girls") as Oxana; Wanda Sykes (ABC's "black-ish") as Gregoria; and Mitchell Whitfield ("My Cousin Vinny") as Demi.

The series is produced by Academy Award®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Junior.
