Where can your imagination take you? Anywhere you want to be! Audiences in Morgantown are invited to make a world of adventure come to life with Elmo, Abby Cadabby and friends as the stage lights come up on Sesame Street Live 1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends. This imagination-inspired musical will make a stop at the WVU Creative Arts Center from Friday, Jan. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 23. Tickets for all five performances go on sale Monday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m.
The magical journey begins as Sesame Street’s mail carrier, Sam, stops by to deliver special postcards from far-away places. When Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and friends wish to visit the exciting locations, Sam shares her secret on how they can – it’s as easy as counting “1-2-3 Imagine!” Ernie’s imagination takes him to the high seas to captain the ‘Good Ship Rubber Duckie’, Elmo dances to the rhythm of the African rainforest and Bert meets an octopus who has the blues. It’s a story of adventure and fun that teaches children they can be anyone, do anything and go anywhere with the power of imagination.
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 “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon,” “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” and “Surfin’ Safari.”
