With Super Size Me filmmaker/activist Morgan Spurlock, serving as the comfort counselor, and Robert Funaro, from The Sopranos and Vinyl in the house, Broadway participants, including Grace McLean (The Great Comet); Geoff Packard (Bandstand); Ben Jeffrey (The Lion King); Bhavesh Patel (Present Laughter); Evan Todd (Beautiful); Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies); Lauryn Ciardullo (Aladdin); Karl Kenzler (Fiddler on the Roof); Stephanie Torns (Waitress) ; Michael Park from Dear Evan Hansen, and, Donald Webber Jr., (Hamilton) served as the spelling contestants and with hilarious commentary from Feldman and Reiss.

Broadway Bound Kids has been providing arts education programs for NYC youth since 2004. Their programs inspire and empower young lives through the arts by creating a nurturing and stress-free environment where kids gain confidence, express themselves, and find a place where they feel a sense of belonging and acceptance.
