Before stuffing that turkey and making small talk with cousins you see twice a year, start your Thanksgiving with performances from some of Broadway’s best. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade traditionally features a slew of performances from the Great White Way’s current hits, and this year, that lineup includes School of Rock, Fiddler on the Roof and more.
The event will also feature performance from the casts of Finding Neverland, The King and I, On Your Feet!, Something Rotten! and NBC’s forthcoming live telecast of The Wiz. Also making an appearance will be the Radio City Christmas Spectacular's Rockettes.
Additional participants in this year’s parade include former Broadway.com vlogger Jennifer Nettles, Cirque du Soleil, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Mariah Carey, Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson, Daughtry, Andra Day, Andy Grammer, Sandra Lee, Shawn Mendes, MercyMe, MIPSO, Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell, Mark and Marty Howe, Jake Owen, Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T’s, Rachel Platten, Questlove with the cast & the Muppets of Sesame Street, Prince Royce, Trey Songz, Jordin Sparks, Chica and Sprout and Train.
The 89th annual event, hosted by The Today Show’s Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker, will be broadcast on NBC on November 26.
