A Christmas Story’s youngest actors were particularly thrilled to meet the hitmakers. Dressed up for the festive play in a collection of red and green outfits the youngsters rallied around the famous couple for photographs.
The Part of Me star wore a bright floral knitted dress and teal boots for the occasion and accessorised with some large festive earrings. The singer wore her dark curls swept over one shoulder and completed her look with seasonal dark eye shadow. Thirty-five-year-old John sported a smart tweed jacket and similar scarf with beige chinos and a polo shirt.
There was one other man who caught Katy's eye at the theatre - wearing red and white from head to toe - Santa Claus was also lucky enough to pose with the singer.
Katy and John, who began dating in the summer, were seen together celebrating John's birthday in October. The Gravity singer marked his special day by going for both lunch and dinner with girlfriend Katy. The date put an end to speculation that the pair had split in August when the Teenage Dream singer reportedly ended the budding romance after dating John for a couple of months.
The 28-year-old was first spotted out with her beau, who has previously dated Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt, in June and in August the pair were pictured in a car, with John behind the wheel, as they headed out for dinner in Los Angeles.
Katy, whose divorce from Russell Brand was made official in July, was linked to Florence And The Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd and model Baptiste Giabiconi after calling time on her marriage to the British comic.
Russell and Katy split up in December after 14 months of marriage. In a statement, 36-year-old Russell said: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."
The couple met at the MTV Video Music Awards in September 2009 and married in a lavish ceremony in India in October 2010. But rumours of cracks in their relationship circulated right from the start as their respective careers meant they were rarely even in the same country.
By going public with their romance John and Katy have set the rumour mill running with reports emerging that the two plan to find a house in LA together.
