Past hosts have included Haven Burton (Kinky Boots), Patrick Cassidy (Assassins), Jeff Marx (Avenue Q), Paris Barclay (Glee, DGA President), Ben Toth (Musical Director, Kristin Chenoweth, Cheyenne Jackson), Jonah Platt (Wicked) and Graham Phillips (13The Good Wife).

Students are selected from a variety of high schools/colleges such as NYU, Pace University, Fordham, Columbia, Stuyvesant HS, Bronx High School of Science, Regis HS, Bronx Prep, Democracy Prep, Monsignor Farrell, Notre Dame Academy, Pelham HS, Bronx School of the Arts, and LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts.
