ELLENTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feld Entertainment Inc., the worldwide leader in live touring family entertainment, announces today the inaugural production under their new partnership with the non-profit educational organization, Sesame Workshop: Sesame Street Live! Let’s Party! Families will feel immersed in the happy world of Sesame Street through furry and friendly encounters both on- and offstage, as they interact with lovable characters as never before. Paul Becker directs and choreographs the sensory spectacular that launches in St. Petersburg, Fla., on October 20, 2017. Tickets are on-sale now for all 2017 engagements at SesameStreetLive.com.
Everyone’s invited to take part in the sunniest and funniest street celebration in Sesame Street Live! Let’s Party! From the moment the curtain rises, parents and children alike will be on their feet dancing along to a pop-infused soundtrack with new 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 wintry 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 on-stage 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.
Helping lead a company known for delivering exceptional live experiences to families around the world, producer Nicole Feld has taken immense care in developing a dynamic theatrical roadmap to adapt the beloved, critically-acclaimed television program into a musically and visually charged journey the whole family will enjoy. “The characters, songs, and lessons of Sesame Street are timeless because adults and children feel encouraged to participate in the content,” said Feld. “For this new approach to Sesame Street Live!, my vision as a producer, and also as a parent, is to create an equally engaging live experience that welcomes the entire family to dance, sing, and play with these fun characters and each other.”
“Sesame Workshop is proud to partner with Feld Entertainment on this new chapter for Sesame Street Live!” said Scott Chambers, Senior Vice President and General Manager of North America Media and Licensing at Sesame Workshop. “We are both committed to creating experiences that deepen our connection with families, and this new production supports Sesame’s mission of helping children grow smarter, stronger, and kinder in an unforgettable way.”
