Do you remember your first time?
The first time you went to a Broadway show, that is.
My very first Broadway show was way back in high school. Our school Drama teacher took us to see Me and My Girl. I was amazed by absolutely everything. I was star struck by it all the sets, the music, and the choreography it was awesome. Immediately I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to go to another show.
I do go as often as I can and every year I take advantage of the Broadway League’s Kids’ Night on Broadway because I want to bring that same experience to my own kids. The Broadway League sponsors Kids’ Night on Broadway. For every ticket you purchase you can bring a child, 6-18 years old for free. This is a great affordable way to enjoy a Broadway show with your children.
Tonight marks the end of Broadway week, but never fear you can participate next year. Tickets typically go on sale in November/ December. You can sign up at their website Kids’ Night on Broadway to receive email updates to find out when tickets will go on sale for KNOB 2016.
Warning tickets sell out very quickly and weekends are near impossible to get. I normally don’t even try for a weekend but shoot for Wednesday night instead. Even with the weekday performance be ready to sign on and purchase tickets the minute they go on sale. The theaters only give a portion of the tickets up for KNOB so they do get grabbed up fast.
Also, the Ticketmaster website is not user friendly can be a little annoying. Once you assure Ticketmaster that no you are not a robot you can purchase your tickets but it does hold you up a bit.
This year we went to see Wicked, which is probably in my top 3 of my favorite, Broadway shows. It is phenomenal and the kids loved it. Can’t wait for next year’s show…
