Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS will present the 19th Annual Easter Bonnet Competition on April 18 and 19 at the New Amsterdam Theatre (214 West 42nd Street) to benefit BC/EFA.

The Easter Bonnet Competition, the two-day Broadway spectacular which features the companies of more than 20 Broadway, Off-Broadway and touring productions singing, dancing, and donning specially created Easter bonnets, has become the hottest ticket on Broadway.  There will be two opportunities for the public to see the Easter Bonnet Competition: Monday, April 18 at 4:30 PM and Tuesday, April 19 at 2 PM.

The Easter Bonnet Competition is the culmination of six intensive weeks of fundraising efforts by Broadway and Off-Broadway company members as well as numerous productions currently on national tour.  Curtain speeches, autographed poster and program sales, auctions, and cabaret performances bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars from audiences prior to the competition.  The winner of the competition will be the company that raises the largest amount of money for BC/EFA.  A second award is granted to the company with the best bonnet design and presentation.  Awards are also presented to the Broadway Play, National Tour and Off-Broadway production raising the most money for BC/EFA.
