SESAME STREET LIVE Takes the Stage in Columbus in March
Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby, and their Sesame Street friends welcome Chamki, Grover's friend from India, to Sesame Street. Together, they explore the universal fun of friendship and celebrate cultural similarities from singing and dancing to sharing cookies.
CAPA presents Sesame Street Live "Make a New Friend" at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Saturday, March 25, at 10:30am and 2 pm, and on Sunday March 26, at 1 pm and 4:30pm. Tickets are $23-$65 at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
Chamki is from far away and she's visiting Sesame Street for just one day. Grover has a long to-do list for his friend from kayaking to hot yoga, but Chamki is busy enjoying cookies with Cookie Monster, singing with Abby Cadabby, and doing 'The Elmo Slide.' Will an appearance from Super Grover get Chamki's attention?
Sesame Street Live "Make a New Friend" offers a fun-filled, interactive learning experience, including up-close and furry interactions on the audience floor. Like television's "Sesame Street," each Sesame Street Live production features timeless tunes and 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 "Count Me In" and fun new parodies of "Hot and Cold" and "Moves Like Jagger."
