Sesame Street Live to play Sanford Center

Sesame Street Live will play the Sanford Center in Bemidji on Oct. 4-5, the center announced today. 

"Elmo Makes Music" will feature Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and other Sesame Street favorites taking to the stage at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 4 and at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Oct. 5.

The premise of the show is Jenny, an enthusiastic new music teacher, arrives on Sesame Street only to discover her instruments are missing, according to a press release. Jenny's new Muppet friends quickly come to the rescue and discover 'instruments' they never knew existed -- rubber duckies, trash can lids and even cookie jars. Elmo and friends teach children that everyone can make and enjoy beautiful music together.

Officials said the audience, adults and children alike, will hear music and songs they'll recognize and enjoy, such as "The Hustle," "You Should Be Dancing" and "Rockin' Robin." The show features nearly two dozen songs, including children's classics such as "C Is for Cookie" and "The Alphabet Song."
