To celebrate Kids’ Night on Broadway, many restaurants will be offering discounts, in addition to the in-theatre activities for kids including talkbacks, Kids’ Night on Broadway activity books, and other events still to be announced. Audience members attending their first Broadway show can let the world know with “My First Broadway Show” stickers, available at participating theatres. These stickers can be placed on the show’s Playbill as a keepsake or worn to let everyone know in the theatre and on social media that Kid’s Night on Broadway is the start to a new theatre-going tradition. This will be sure to leave a lasting impression for a young person’s overall Broadway show experience.
All guests must have a ticket to attend shows; offer is applied as 50% off each ticket; no additional ‘free’ tickets are added to orders.
Kids’ Night on Broadway will continue to take place throughout the year in multiple cities around the country with different shows and venues providing their own unique approach to the event.
