The series, which has played Thursday nights at 11 PM, will move to primetime at 8 PM July 17-21. Broadway Ballyhoo will resume 11 PM performances July 26 and continue every Thursday night.
"We have happily found an audience of folks who want to hear great singers, singing great show tunes at the end of the evening," said Siegel in a statement. "But this special Ballyhoo Festival gives us a chance to reach those people who like to hear this music but can't always stay up that late on a Thursday night. We wanted to give them a taste of what we offer every week."
According to press notes, "In keeping with the Broadway Ballyhoo format, each show in its primetime run will feature an entirely different cast of stars and an entirely different set of show tunes."
The lineup follows:
Kevin Earley (Death Takes a Holiday)
Jack Donahue (Panama Hattie)
William Michals (South Pacific)
Carole J. Bufford
Allan Harris (The Taming of Helen)
Karen Mason (Wonderland, Rebecca)
Ben Davis (La Boheme)
Other performers scheduled for Broadway Ballyhoo include Stephen DeRosa (Into The Woods), Lisa Howard (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and Christina Bianco (Forbidden Broadway Goes to Rehab).
