Kids Week is back for 2014 with a bang, offering an incredible 36 London shows with free tickets and amazing exclusive activities for children throughout the whole of August. This year sees everything from hilarious page to stage adaptations to dramatic long-running musicals each taking their place in the line-up.
Kids Week is now in its 17th year and shows no sign of stopping. From 1-31 August, one child aged 16 or younger can go free for every adult ticket purchased to a participating show, plus a further two children’s tickets can be purchased at half price. Shows such as – for the younger theatre-goers – acclaimed picture book stage adaptations Aliens Love Underpants, The Tiger Who Came To Tea and What The Ladybird Heard are on the cards, as well as those such as Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Matilda The Musical, Les Misérables, The Phantom Of The Opera and Wicked.
For families wanting a slightly different theatrical experience, there are shows on offer that aren’t so much in the mainstream such as The 39 Steps, Stomp or book to stage adaptation War Horse. Also included in the Kids Week celebration is Beatles concert extravaganza Let It Be and Michael Jackson tribute show Thriller Live. For slightly older children, Billy Elliot The Musical, The Bodyguard, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, The Mousetrap and The Woman In Black all return to take part in Kids Week.
Each show offers a unique theatrical experience regardless of age category; ticket holders can also explore life on stage or behind the scenes with a host of fantastic activities. From attending a tea party with The Tiger Who Came To Tea to taking a Billy Elliot ballet class, there is something for everyone.
