HELL’S KITCHEN — A host of Broadway stars including “The Book of Mormon” and “Girls” actor Andrew Rannells and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” lead Christian Borle will work the counter at a Hell’s Kitchen bakery this month.

More than 20 performers will sell cookies at Schmackary’s, at 362 W. 45th St. near Ninth Avenue, from May 15 to May 19 to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the bakery said.

All of the tips the stars receive — and half of the proceeds from cookie sales — will go to the nonprofit organization.

“Every step of the way, the backing of the theatre community has helped our little cookie company grow into a huge success story,” Schmackary’s owner Zachary Schmahl said in a statement.

“So when it came time to give back, Schmackary’s wanted to assist the Broadway community in any way possible,” he added.

“Falsettos” stars Stephanie J. Block and Brandon Uranowitz, “Bandstand” actors Corey Cott and Laura Osnes, “Matilda” actress Lesli Margherita, and “Anastasia” actors Christy Altomare and Derek Klena are also slated to serve up baked goods, though the roster of stars is subject to change.

The actors will work behind the counter from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
