    The kids were in their seats waiting for the next number.

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?


    "The kids were in their seats waiting for the next number. Johnny appeared on stage to present the next number.

    After a few jokes, Bernard showed up dressed as a clown. Beside him, Tim appeared dressed as a clown too. They made a comedy routine."

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    If one person appears dressed as a a clown at the same as another person appears dressed as a clown, we say that two people appear dressed as clowns.
    If their relative position is important, you can say they appeared side by side as clowns.
