Theatregoers will be able to raise money for the NSPCC throughout May and June by going to see a selection of their favourite plays and musicals ranging from The Phantom of the Opera to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
The initiative is part of the Entertainment Full Stop campaign in which the NSPCC is teaming up with a variety of show business partners. It has already raised £16,000 through the charity premiere of Rowan Atkinson's new film Johnny English.
Tickets for 22 plays and musicals have gone on sale through a special phone line and the NSPCC web site as part of the campaign.
For performances between 19 May and 15 June, £10 will be donated to the charity for each top price or discounted top price ticket sold. A restaurant scheme is also planned for May which will give diners at eateries such as the River Cafe and Soho House the option of donating on their bill.
