Kids Night on Broadway is a program created by The Broadway League that introduces the next generation of theatergoers to Broadway and allows them to experience live theater. In addition to the show, there will be family-friendly activities including the opportunity to make a pirate hat and hunt for treasure. Pre-show activities will begin at 12:30 pm.

Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award®-winning film, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters, Peter Pan.

Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.

The winner of’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, Finding Neverland is a breathtaking smash that “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine.
