The Broadway League has announced that its annual program Kids’ Night on Broadway, presented by The New York Times, will return to NYC on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, offering a free ticket for audience members under the age of 18, when accompanied by a full-paying adult. All theatergoers must have a ticket to the show; the offer is applied as 50% off each ticket when purchased as a pair, and no additional free tickets may be added to the order.
In addition to the ticket offer, Kids’ Night on Broadway is celebrated with special in-theater activities including talkbacks, singalongs, art projects, activity books, and more. Participating theaters will have free “My First Broadway Show” stickers, which kids can place on their Playbill program as a keepsake or wear on their clothing to let everyone know they’re making their debut as an audience member. Select restaurants will also be offering exclusive discounts for ticketholders.
This year’s fourteen participating shows are: A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical; Aladdin; & Juliet; Back to the Future: The Musical; Chicago; Hamilton; Harry Potter and the Cursed Child; Kimberly Akimbo; The Lion King; MJ The Musical; Moulin Rouge! The Musical; SIX; Spamalot; and Wicked. Please note that, because of their performance schedules, the Kids’ Night on Broadway date for & Juliet will take place on Thursday, February 15, and for SIX will take place on Wednesday, February 14.
Tickets for Kids’ Night on Broadway will be available for purchase at a later date TBA.
