Just a reminder, for those who are interested, Kids Week opened today, offering a free ticket to a variety of West End shows for an under-16 when accompanied by a full-paying adult.

I've just got tickets to Phantom (shockingly, after 20 visit to West End shows, I've never seen this, we're on the second row), Deathtrap (this sounds brilliant, with a great cast, first preview, and at 35 for two tickets, an absolute bargain) and Jersey Boys (including the chance to perform 'Oh What a Night!' with the cast, has anyone done any of these show-related activities??).

It's gonna be a busy week...

It really is, and I got some pretty good seats, but sadly it's the last time I'm eligible. Are you doing any of the workshops/activities?? I really have no idea what to expect from the Jersey Boys one...

I'm only going to see the shows unfortunately. Is it for 16 and under or just under 16? Cause this is either my last time or I have to pretend I'm 15!

I have no idea actually, if it includes 16 year olds, then I get another year, woopwoop.

I am actually really looking foward to the Jersey Boys thing, it sounds awesome.

And it's nice to find another teenage theatregoer, do you like performing or just watching??

I like performing, although I do love watching people who are a lot better than I am! biggrin.gif I'd love to do one of the workshops but I'm going with my grandparents so we haven't really got time.

Same here when it comes to loving performing, always in the school productions bespite a complete lack of singing ability - we did Jesus Christ Superstar last year.

I see that you're doing all three shows over two days - Wow, quite a challenge.

And I must say I love how this topic has just turned into us chatting

Was that the thing in Covent Garden?? Cos I know it didn't happen last year and haven't heard anything about this year (yet).
