The cast of Glee will perform at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 5.
Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly said the performance resulted from a request by first lady Michelle Obama.
“Sources confirm to me exclusively that First Lady Michelle Obama has invited the cast of Glee to perform at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 5 — and, barring any last-minute glitches, they’re gonna do it!” reported Ausiello.
"Rumor has it Mrs. O and her daughters are big fans of the show," wrote Ausiello. "And since a White House gig is an offer that’s pretty darn hard to refuse, Glee’s producers did some lickety-split schedule rejiggering in order to honor the request."
According to information released by the White House, the theme of this year’s egg roll is “Ready, Set, Go!” with the goal of promoting health and wellness. The egg rolling and other activities will revolve around the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” initiative to combat childhood obesity. The event on the White House South Lawn is open to children age 12 and younger and their families.
Tickets will be distributed through an online lottery system open for entries until February 28. Find more details here.
