Stephanie J. Block and more Broadway actors will sleep under the stars for Covenant House.

Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block will join forces with Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Capathia Jenkins and composers Neil Berg and Frank Wildhorn for Sleep Out: Broadway Edition on August 19.

Block, Jenkins, Berg and Wildhorn serve as the executive committee (alongside honorary co-chairs Hanks and Wilson) for the Broadway arm of Covenant House’s Sleep Out program, which involves a one-night fundraising event wherein participants sleep outside under the stars to support homeless youth.

The evening begins with a round of dialogue between formerly homeless teens and participating sleepers, all of whom will share and hear stories before receiving a cardboard box, sleeping bag and safe piece of pavement for the night.

Sleep Out: Broadway Edition is open to any member of the theater community who has worked on a Broadway or off-Broadway production in any capacity. Founded in 1972, Covenant House supports homeless kids with 24/7 crisis care and ongoing support at 21 facilities.
