That’s because Broadway’s annual ‘Kids’ Night’ is officially returning to NYC on Tuesday, August 29th, for a special summer edition!
Kids Night on Broadway (KNOB) has been a beloved yearly tradition started by The Broadway League that immerses young New Yorkers in the city’s rich arts & culture scene at no cost, “[making] Broadway accessible to a new generation of theatergoers.”
Those ages 18 and under (6-18 years old) can attend a Broadway show for free, so long as they are joined by a full-paying adult.
Not only will participants get to see a FREE show, but a KNOB ticket includes tons of fabulous activities to do prior to the performance. Plus, parking discounts, restaurant discounts and educational programs also come with a ticket.
The program doesn’t just run in NYC, but across numerous cities in the country. Past cities include Memphis, Tennessee, San Diego, California and Appleton, Wisconsin.
“Thanks to this program, 182,747 kids and teens have attended a show for free and we know that will affect their theatergoing habits for the future,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League in a statement.
Those looking to participate in this year’s event can score their tickets during during the on-sale period here on the program’s website. The sales launch date and participating Broadway shows have yet to be announced.
It’s important to note that tickets are required for all audience members (children 18 and under included). When purchasing tickets, the cost gets marked down by 50% when ordering for one adult and one child.
