Being a theatre lover can be an expensive hobby for anyone, but especially for families and young people. Fortunately, many theatres and theatre companies try to make their shows more accessible by offering discounted tickets to young people and students, either at ticket checkout or through special membership schemes. We’ve done the research and made a list of some of the places where it pays to be young.

A couple of weeks ago we had our annual variety show, in which students from two of our schools had the chance to show off their singing and dancing skills in a real theatre. They had a wonderful time, and so did their parents, grandparents and friends who were in the audience. It’s a great experience for children to have that moment in the spotlight, either by themselves or with their classmates. But most people who come to watch a performance don’t think about what goes on outside of that spotlight. And there are actually a lot of things that need to happen offstage to make sure that the show goes on.
