Alice Lee, who originated the role of Heather Duke in Off-Broadway's Heathers, will be a contestant on the ABC reality series "Rising Star" June 29.

Lee, who also appeared in the Off-Broadway revival Bare, has been seen on Broadway in Spring Awakening and the first version of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark.

Twelve singers from across the country will perform on the Sunday night episode of the new reality series, which will air 9-11 PM ET.

Other contestants include Egypt Dixon, Megan Tibbits, Rye Davis, Shameia Crawford, Austin French, Deedra Ervin, April Lockhart, Trinitii (group ages 19-30), Will Roth, Adam Jaymes and Sonnet Simmons.

Singer-songwriter Josh Groban is host, and country music superstar Brad Paisley, music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris comprise the panel on "Rising Star," in which the audience has the final say in who wins.

According to ABC, "Each episode of the show follows a group of aspiring singers as they perform live. During each performance, viewers vote in real time via an App to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on. In addition, based on the number of viewer photos appearing on the wall, the performer can see the level of response to his or her performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic."

To vote, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Market Place, or the Google Play Store.
