This special edition of Kids' Night will salute UNICEF and the 60th anniversary of its Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF program.
In a statement Riegler said, "I am honored to be the Ambassador for this special Halloween Kids' Night on Broadway. Halloween is one of the greatest days of the year for kids, and Broadway is great for kids every day of the year! We're asking kids to come dressed in costume as their favorite Broadway characters, and I can't wait to look out at the audience to see all of the Pugsleys!"
Kids' Night is scheduled for Oct. 31 in Manhattan. A pre-theatre Halloween party will kick off the celebration at 11 AM at Madame Tussauds New York. KNOB ticket holders will experience unique theatre activities as well as the famous attraction for free. To celebrate Halloween, there will be festive Broadway costume events, stage door trick-or-treating and more. Kids are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Broadway characters.
