BROADWAY “KIDS TABLE” DINNER WITH A BROADWAY STAR TO LAUNCH IN MARCH


Rosie O’Donnell kicked off the 13th annual KIDS’ NIGHT ON BROADWAY at a pre-theatre party and Fan Festival at Madame Tussauds New York! In addition to introducing the first ever Broadway Kids Advisory Board and announcing the March launch of the new “KIDS TABLE” opportunity, the festivities also celebrated that KIDS’ NIGHT ON BROADWAY will now occur every month!

KIDS’ NIGHT ON BROADWAY (www.KidsNightonBroadway.com) is the now year-round program where kids ages 6 to18 can see Broadway shows for free on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month when accompanied by a full-paying adult. Tickets for participating shows will go on sale two months prior to the event dates. Ticket includes educational programs, workshops, pre-theatre parties, restaurant and parking discounts, Special Edition Kids’ Playbill provided by Theatre Development Fund, and Broadway fun and events. Details on the educational program planned for March will be announced soon.

To enhance the educational components of KIDS’ NIGHT ON BROADWAY and to make Broadway an even more unforgettable experience, the first Broadway “KIDS TABLE” is set to begin in March. Each month, three kids (and their guests) will have a chance to be randomly selected to attend a special pre-theatre dinner with a celebrated Broadway performer and receive complimentary tickets to a Broadway show. KIDS’ NIGHT ON BROADWAY National Ambassador Rosie O’Donnell will host the first “KIDS TABLE” in March.

For a chance to participate in the very first KIDS TABLE, kids should visit www. KidsNightonBroadway.com and click on KIDS TABLE. They will need to read through Thru the Stage Door's newest study guide, "Broadway 101," and click on the KIDS TABLE tab when finished. After answering 5 short questions, they can submit their contact information.
