Visit your local public library and check out different books on Broadway and different musicals. These look great as part of table centerpieces or as general decorations placed throughout your party area. They can either be laying flat or they can also be propped up in a half open fashion (remember to visit both the children's AND adult's section of the library.)

Look up some facts on different Broadway musicals at your local library or on the Internet and periodically ask your guests them throughout the party, awarding points as you go (true or false might be the way to go for younger crowds). Give a prize to the individual with the most points at the end of the party.

Find all the Broadway Musicals game! Here is another passive game that can last the entire event. Print out several pictures from different Broadway Musicals. Write a different number on each picture - large and bold enough to see. Hang or prop the pictures around the party area. Some should be in plain view, most others should be hidden a bit out of sight. Give each guest a piece of paper and a pencil/pen. They need to find as many musicals as they can and write down the number they find on the picture. You could also write random words or names on each picture instead of numbers… in any case, the name or number on the picture provides "proof" that the guest found the picture. The winner is the first to find all pictures and turn in the list with the correct answers. Or…have a cut off time for the lists. Five minutes after the cutoff, you can have a raffle using the turned in lists. You could also give each guest one ticket for each correct answer and then have a raffle for gifts after all tickets are given out.

A red carpet can be achieved in a couple of ways. Teacher supply stores often offer different colors of butcher paper. Some even allow you to purchase different colors by the foot. These are the perfect width and easily create a disposable carpet for your party. If buying by the foot, be sure to measure how long you'll need it first (allowing a few extra feet in case your measurements were a little off.) The same can also be achieved with solid wrapping paper. Some party supply stores offer the same kind of service with different colors of wrapping paper. Although this would work as an alternative, the paper is of a lighter stock and will rip easily under the feet of your guests - it's a great look, but won't last long (at least not as long as the butcher paper.) A final suggestion is a role of the table cloth plastic. This can be sturdy, but can run a little bit expensive depending on where you get it. Of course, this can all be done with fabric (but this would be the most expensive route to go - start with the dollar section of JoAnn's and Wal-Mart.) This is a great place to have someone stationed dressed like a reporter taking pictures of your guests as they arrive. These pictures look great as part of the thank you cards you might be sending out.

Shining stars make great decorations. You can purchase them at your local party supply store (gold or silver) or you can make your own by cutting out stars from sheets of cardboard and covering them with aluminum foil. Some craft stores even sell metallic gold and silver sheets of poster board. Check around to see what you can find.
Dig out those Christmas decorations boxes and dig out all of the ALL WHITE Christmas lights you can (borrow them from friends and family if needed.) These look GREAT around posters, doorways and windows!

Ask around for anyone who has taken any kind of drama class (or have spouses, children, neighbors, etc.) As part of the curriculum, drama classes teach dozens of fun acting games and activities, from improve to monologues to just fun parlor games. These make great activities that everyone can be a part of.
