Mark your calendars for a musical event like no other – monsters making music.
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," now featuring the all new "Play Zone" at the Bell County Expo Center on March 6-7.
Come and play before the show, as the VEE Corporation introduces Play Zone at Sesame Street live – a fun, new way for children to experience their favorite street. Imagine your child sitting in Big Bird's nest, popping up in Oscar's trash can, twirling in Zoe's dance studio or visiting Elmo's World. You never know who'll make and appearance. Families won't want to miss a single picture-perfect moment. Play Zone opens one hour before the show and best of all, Play Zone is free with your Sesame Street Live ticket.
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 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."
