The annual Easter Bonnet Competition will return this spring to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Performers from Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies will showcase their talents in song, dance and comedy, topped off by outstandingly creative bonnets hand-designed especially for the event.

The 2016 edition of Easter Bonnet Competition will again take over the Minskoff Theatre, currently the home of Disney's long-running hit The Lion King.

The two-day event will be held at 4:30 pm on April 25 and at 2 pm on April 26. Get tickets.

Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the Easter Bonnet Competition celebrates six weeks of intensive fundraising efforts by dozens of Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies. Broadway Cares’ iconic red buckets started appearing at theatre exits March 11 and will continue through April 24. Two dozen Broadway shows have begun their appeals from the stage: AladdinAn American in ParisBeautiful - The Carole King MusicalThe Book of MormonChicagoThe Color PurpleThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TimeDisaster!Fiddler on the RoofFinding NeverlandFun HomeHamiltonThe HumansJersey BoysKinky BootsLes MisĂ©rablesThe Lion KingMatilda The MusicalOn Your Feet!The Phantom of the OperaSchool of Rock - The MusicalShe Loves MeSomething Rotten! and Wicked, as well as Off-Broadway's Avenue QThe Robber BridegroomSheer Madness and Trip of Love, with more still to come.
