Sesame Street goes 'green' in area show

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Sunny isn't just the weather forecast on Sesame Street - it's also the name of Elmo's new sunflower friend! Join all your favorite friends as they help Elmo find a new home for Sunny when Sesame Street Live "Elmo's Green Thumb" performs at the Tyson Events Center, Sioux City, Jan. 6 - 7.

Tickets go on sale this week.

Elmo has raised his sunflower, Sunny, from a seed, but his floral friend has outgrown the flower pot. Elmo and friends find Big Bird's garden the ideal place for Sunny to flourish and grow but they are too excited to wait. Rather than let Sunny follow nature's course, Abby Cadabby, Sesame Street's fairy-in-training, casts a spell to make Sunny grow. The spell does just the opposite and, instead of growing, Elmo and all of his friends shrink! While Abby searches for just the right words to reverse the spell, Elmo, Zoe, Telly and friends explore Big Bird's garden from a smaller perspective and learn some big lessons about patience, overcoming their fears and appreciating the role that each creature plays in our ecosystem - from dancing ladybugs and beautiful butterflies to grouchy beetles that scavenge the garden floor. Will being small help Sunny grow tall? It's a fresh, original Sesame Street Live on a whole new scale!

Sesame Street Live "Elmo's Green Thumb" will be performed Tuesday, Jan. 6, 7 p.m.; and Wednesday, Jan. 7, 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, $16 and $18 plus $2 facility fee. A limited number of $22 Gold Circle seats are also available. To charge tickets by phone, call Ticketmaster at 712-252-3434 or buy online at www.ticketmaster.com.
