PIKEVILLE, Ky. - Join the chorus for the toe tapping, finger snapping musical event of the year.
All anyone needs is a song when Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Murray and the rest of the Sesame Street gang bring the magic of music to life on stages big and small — and right into the audience. The all-new Sesame Street Live “Can’t Stop Singing” will perform at the Eastern Kentucky Expo Center from Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14.
Tickets for all five performances are on sale now.
When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage! Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along. Kids can learn why it feels good to sing a song, but why it feels good to stop, too. What will Elmo learn about the power of musical magic? Join the conga line of fun to find out.
Also available before the show is the Play Zone. 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 an appearance. Play Zone, which opens one hour before the show, is free with a Sesame Street Live ticket.
Sesame Street Live “Can’t Stop Singing” offers a fun-filled learning experience packed with the razzle-dazzle of interactive live performance, including up-close and personal interactions on the audience floor. Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless lessons for all ages. The universal appeal of each Broadway-quality musical production continues long after preschool. Adults will appreciate the high-tech stagecraft, cleverly written script, music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as fun new parodies of “Shout” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”
The event begins at 7 p.m. Oct. 12; 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Oct. 13; and 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Oct. 14, at the Eastern Kentucky Expo Center, 126 Main Street, Pikeville, KY 41501. Tickets are $15 and $20.
