Kid’s Night On Broadway is an event presented by The Broadway League in which children ages 6 to 18 can see a participating Broadway show for free as long as they are with a full paying adult. The Broadway League began the program in 1996 to allow young people to experience the thrill of live theatre.
Participating shows include: Billy Elliot, Chicago, Fela! , Hair, In The Heights, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!, Memphis, Next To Normal, The Phantom Of The Opera, South Pacific, West Side Story, Wicked, Avenue Q and Stomp.
In NYC, the celebration kicks off at Madame Tussauds (234 West 42nd Street between 7th & 8th Avenues) on February 2 with a Fan Festival hosted by Corbin Bleu (from High School Musical). KNOB tickets are also available for both the matinee and evening performances on Sunday, February 7th.
All participants receive a special souvenir Playbill from tdf (hey, that's us!) that also qualifies them for discounts at eateries in and around the midtown area, pre-theatre parties, and discounted parking. The playbill includes behind-the-scenes information on many of the participating shows. Look closely - many PxP ploggers contributed their writing!
Some of the KNOB festivities include a theatrical makeup station, Broadway karaoke and dance (with host Corbin Bleu and other Broadway actors), a Broadway tattoo parlor, Autograph Alley with Broadway casts, and Camp Broadway and Broadway Green Alliance special activities.
