Exhibits & In-Theater Activities
At The New Victory, we work to make your trip to the theater an exciting experience that starts way before the curtain goes up and remains in your memory for a long time to come. These bonus activities at the theater are designed for you and your family to try out different art forms, ask questions of the performers, learn more about the shows on our stages and, most importantly, have fun! There is no additional fee required to participate in any or all of these in-theater engagement activities. Just purchase tickets to the corresponding show!
Shows for little ones in the New 42nd Street Studios are accompanied by pre-show arts and crafts activities with take-aways to bring home as mementos of your child’s first theater adventures. Ring A Ding Ding, Grug and Fragile feature Busy Bees this season.
Stay after selected performances and get to know the creative team and performers. Talk-Backs are noted with on the Season Calendar.
