Stage stars Kerry Butler, Elizabeth Marvel, Todd Buonopane and Mary Catherine Garrison (currently in Broadway's Accent on Youth) will appear on the April 16 broadcast of "30 Rock."

The episode, titled "Jackie Jormp-Jomp," airs at 9:30 PM (ET); check local listings.

Tina Fey ("Saturday Night Live," "Mean Girls") stars in the sitcom that centers around the making of a weekly live sketch show titled "The Girlie Show," which stars fellow "SNL" alum Tracy Morgan and Tony Award winner Jane Krakowski. Stage veteran Alec Baldwin also appears as a network executive.

"During a short-term suspension from work, Liz (Fey) is lost without 'TGS' and misses all the stress that comes with the job," reads a synopsis for the episode. "Meanwhile, when the film studio has second thoughts on releasing Jenna's (Krakowski) Janis Joplin biopic, Jack (Baldwin) needs Jenna to create some promotional buzz using her celebrity status."

Butler (Xanadu), Marvel (Top Girls) and Garrison (Assassins) will guest star, confirmed an NBC spokesperson. Buonopane (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) reprises his previous guest turn on the series.

Other stage alum to have appeared on the show include Elaine Stritch, Nathan Lane, Brian Murray, Whoopi Goldberg, Patti LuPone, Edie Falco, John Lithgow, Jackie Hoffman, Brian Dennehy, Megan Mullally, Peter Hermann, Stephanie March, Marylouise Burke, Deidre Goodwin, Laila Robins, Peter Dinklage, Rip Torn, Wayne Brady, Isabella Rosselini and more.
