For the first time, The Broadway League's KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY pre-theatre Fan Fest will take place at Discovery Times Square (226 West 44th Street) on Tuesday, February 26th from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
The annual Fan Fest is free for all parents and children who have purchased a KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY ticket. Aiming to enhance the experience of live theatre, the Fan Fest allows kids to participate in special activities created by Broadway shows. The Fan Fest will include show-themed games and activities, makeup demonstrations, Autograph Alley with Broadway performers, a dance workshop with Revolución Latina, Broadway Karaoke, and much more, including a free theatre activity guide. The Broadway Green Alliance will also collect plastic bottle caps (plastic and metal) to incorporate in to the set for the new production of Peter and the Starcatcher Off-Broadway. For every handful of caps brought, a prize will be given.
During the entire week of KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY, (February 25 - March 3), the purchase of one Discovery Times Square adult ticket will admit one child for free to either Harry Potter: The Exhibition or Spy: The Exhibit. This offer will also apply during the Fan Fest. Proof of KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY ticket will be required to redeem this offer. Please note that only one child ticket is granted per adult ticket purchase. Exhibit Purchase is not required in order to attend the Fan Fest.
"Everyone at The Broadway League is excited to have this year's Fan Fest at Discovery Times Square. The annual event is a great way for kids to interact with Broadway talent and to meet other kids who also enjoy theatre," said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League. "Like Broadway, the Discovery Times Square exhibits are creative, imaginative, and educational."
KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY is when kids ages 6 to 18 can see Broadway shows for free when accompanied by a full-paying adult. A KIDS' NIGHT ON BROADWAY ticket includes free pre-theatre parties, restaurant discounts, parking discounts, educational programs, and more.
