Join the chorus for this toe tapping, finger snapping musical event. All you need is a song when Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Murray and all of your favorite Sesame Street friends 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 is at the USF Sun Dome, located at 4202 E. Fowler Ave., in Tampa on Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2. Tickets 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. 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!
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, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as fun new parodies of “Shout” and “You Can’t Stop the Music.”
Performances take place on Friday, November 1 at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. and on Saturday, November 2 at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
