One of the traditional highlights of Thanksgiving is Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. For musical fans, the Parade is also a chance to catch performances by the casts of current Broadway shows.

This year, first up will be the cast of Footloose with their title number. Next, Cabaret will welcome parade-goers with Robert Sella's "Wilkommen." Douglas Sills, Rachel York and Rex Smith will perform a medley of tunes from The Scarlet Pimpernel. Apart from her cast, Cathy Rigby will sing from Peter Pan. The final show number will come from Tom Wopat, representing the up-coming Annie Get Your Gun.

Two holiday shows, the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular and Kenny Roger's Christmas From The Heart, will make appearances- Kenny Rogers will sing and the Rockettes will perform one of their famous dance numbers.

An added bonus for this parade is a brand float based on the new animated movie version of The King and I, which will feature Christiane Noll, who sings the role of Anna in the film.

The Macy's Day Parade is broadcast on NBC at 9 AM in all time zones on Thanksgiving Day.
