Adding ensemble to "Spelling Bee?"

Has anyone seen/done a version of Spelling Bee where extra cast members are added to sing some of the songs, just to get more kids involved in the show? I can't imagine how, as everyone obviously needs to be eliminated, but I was trying to think about it like "A Chorus Line," where the large group started and ended the show.

Instead of 4 audience members -- add kids. Also, the dads, Jesus, etc can be new roles.

What about adding a "Greek Chorus" to the ensemble that performs the song when spellers are eliminated (I feel like it's called The Goodbye Song)? I've only seen the show twice so it might or might not work...break a leg!
