Under a new partnership with a nonprofit education organization called Sesame Workshop, Feld Entertainment is presenting the inaugural production of Sesame Street Live! Street Party at the CFE Arena. Sesame Workshop’s mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, and it does this by combining a curriculum that addresses critical developmental needs with the use of media and fun. The show will feature Sesame Street pals Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and more in a sunny and funny street celebration live on stage. There will be three shows of this all-new sensory adventure: Saturday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. as well as Sunday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m.
From the moment the curtain rises, parents and children alike will be on their feet dancing along to a pop-infused soundtrack with their Sesame Street friends and live emcees Casey and Caleb. Planning a party isn’t easy when everybody has a different idea of fun, but with some help from the audience, it becomes the ultimate reflection of what friendship plus teamwork can accomplish. Party guests will sing along to new and familiar songs, like “I Love Trash” and “C is for Cookie,” with Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster; dance to the beat with Elmo; explore a wintery wonderland when Abby Cadabby’s magic goes awry; take flight with Big Bird to learn about some of his fabulous feathered friends; and discover new cultures in an interactive Spanish lesson with Rosita.
A unique, up-close-and-personal pre-show experience will be offered at an additional charge prior to select performances, allowing families the opportunity to tour the onstage neighborhood of their favorite, furry friends before they arrive for the main show. The fun doesn’t end there. A variety of interactive activities give children the chance to create, discover and learn as they help decorate for the upcoming party.
