The annual Kids Night On Broadway, celebrating its fourth year, will be Jan. 25, 2000. Tickets for the event in New York City go on sale Oct. 17.
A co-effort of The League of American Theatres and Producers, Inc. and the Theatre Development Fund, Kids Night on Broadway offers a free ticket for every child 6-18 with the purchase of an adult ticket. Among the other benefits, Kids Night also has a special 7 PM curtain, parking and restaurant discounts and a Kids Fan Fest with interactive theatre-related activities, from being made up as a kitty from Cats to science experiments with the cast of Jekyll & Hyde.
30 Broadway touring companies will also participate in the event regionally, with special dates from January to March 2000.
