To kick off the week, "Millionaire" will welcome Mary Poppins' Steffanie Leigh (Mary Poppins) and Gavin Lee (Bert) as contestants on the show Dec. 19. The actors will play "Millionaire" as a two-person team and will donate their winnings to The Actors Fund, a national human services organization that helps professionals in performing arts and entertainment in times of need, crisis or transition.
The duo is guaranteed to win a minimum of $5,000 for The Actors Fund.
Throughout "Broadway Giveaway Week," contestants will be asked one Broadway-themed question during gameplay. If they answer correctly, they will win tickets to a Broadway performance of Mary Poppins or The Lion King for themselves as well as members of the studio audience.
