WASHINGTON — Rosie O’Donnell and cast members from some of Broadway’s biggest musicals led a sing-along protest against President Trump outside the White House on Monday.

O’Donnell spoke to protesters, some clutching signs with the word ‘‘Treason’’ spelled out, before the group broke into a rendition of ‘‘America the Beautiful.”

The actress told the crowd it was important to make sure their voices were heard so that Trump would know that they were not going away.

The group also sang ‘‘A Brand New Day’’ from ‘‘The Wiz.’’
