Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Morrison will be bringing some holiday cheer from the White House.

Joining First Lady Michelle Obama, the Glee stars will host Broadway at the White House, a Thanksgiving TV special on the TLC network designed to encourage teens seeking a career in theatre, Variety reported.

The special, which will air on TLC Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. ET, will also feature appearances by Broadway writers and performers Gloria Estefan, Christian Borle, Cicely Tyson, Whoopi Goldberg and others.

Obama has invited a group of 40 talented high school students to an all-day symposium at the White House covering careers in theatre. The day will be filmed by Zero Visibility/the Weinstein Co. for the TLC special.

The symposium will include master classes in acting, directing, hair/make-up/costume design, music composition and musical theatre, according to Variety.

There will also be a Q&A for the student with the Broadway stars and, in the evening, performances featuring material from musicals Finding Neverland, Fun Home, An American in Paris, On Your Feet!, School of Rock and Something Rotten!

Be sure to catch Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Morrison when the special airs on Nov. 26.
