Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their Sesame Street friends are taking to the stage to share their love of music in Sesame Street Live Elmo Makes Music at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14. Tickets for all five performances are on sale now.
Jenny, an enthusiastic new music teacher, arrives on Sesame Street only to discover that her instruments are missing. Jenny’s new Muppet friends quickly come to the rescue and discover “instruments” they never knew existed… rubber duckies, trash can lids and even cookie jars. Elmo, Abby Cadabby and friends teach children that everyone can make and enjoy beautiful music together.
Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless lessons for all ages. Through the razzle-dazzle of this Broadway-quality musical production, children learn about patience, acceptance and teamwork. The universal appeal of a Sesame Street Live production continues long after preschool. Adults will appreciate the high-tech stagecraft, cleverly written scripts, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as “The Hustle,” “You Should Be Dancing” and “Rockin’ Robin.” Elmo Makes Music features nearly two dozen songs, including classics that children will love to sing along with such as “C Is for Cookie” and “The Alphabet Song.”
Show times are Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 13 at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 14 at 1 and 4:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $12, $16 and $26. A limited number of $35 Gold Circle seats and $55 Sunny Seats are also available. Sunny Seats feature VIP seats and a pre-show reception with two Sesame Street Live friends. On opening night, all seats (excluding Gold Circle and Sunny Seats) cost $12. Additional fees and special offers may apply.
