On this special day we offer adults the opportunity to purchase a ticket and receive a child's admission free to a wonderful performance at The Fabulous Fox Theatre. Area restaurants show their support by offering free or discounted child's entrees with the purchase of an adult entree. The performance is kicked off by lots of kid-friendly interactive activities in the Fox Theater lobby prior to the show. Kids' Night on Broadway is truly one of the most splendid celebrations of theater and young audiences in St. Louis.
