Kids Night on Broadway

Kids' Night on Broadway is back, with its first date in 2023 planned for March 21. A program of The Broadway League and presented by The New York Times with additional support from Westchester Family, the program sends kids 18 and under to Broadway shows for free as long as they're accompanied by a full-paying adult. Participating shows and a ticket on-sale date will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Along with the ticket program, Kids' Night on Broadway also includes restaurant discounts, in-theatre activities (including talkbacks), activity books, and more. Audience members attending their first-ever Broadway show can get a "My First Broadway Show" sticker.

"We are excited to celebrate the program’s 25th return this spring and have our theatres filled with the exuberant energy of young audiences, many who may be experiencing a live show for the very first time,” says Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin in a statement. “Thanks to this program, 182,747 kids and teens have attended a show for free, and we know that will affect their theatregoing habits for the future. Our research reflects that 63.5% of Broadway audiences reported attending theatre as children or adolescents, helping to establish early lifelong connections to live theatre. And we know that theatre and the arts lead to higher educational achievement and high school graduation rates, and greater happiness.”

The program runs year round in cities across the country. To find an event near you, visit
