"When Elmo Grows Up"

    Favourite friends plan their future from May 22 - 24

    TORONTO, April 8 /CNW/ - Introducing Abby Cadabby! The newest Muppet on
Sesame Street joins Elmo, Zoe, Rosita and all of her furry and feathered
friends in asking, What do you want to be when you grow up? as they prepare
for a pageant on Sesame Street. Get ready to sing cowboy songs, ride the rails
and more when Sesame Street Live "When Elmo Grows Up" performs at Rogers
Centre from Friday, May 22 through Sunday, May 24. Tickets for all seven
performances go on sale Monday, April 13 at 10:00 a.m.
    When Elmo and his Sesame Street Live friends think about growing up, it's
a musical show-and-tell! Bert dreams of becoming a forest ranger, Telly longs
to be a cowboy and their newest friend, Abby Cadabby, wants to be a Fairy
Godmother just like her mommy. Elmo thinks about becoming a 'weather monster,'
but has a hard time predicting his own forecast - he wants to be anything and
everything all at once! "When Elmo Grows Up" includes lessons on perseverance,
teamwork and the power of imagination. Children learn that if they believe in
themselves and are willing to try, the possibilities are endless.
    Like television's Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production
features timeless lessons for all ages. Through the razzle-dazzle of this
Broadway-quality musical production, children learn about patience, acceptance
and teamwork. The universal appeal of a Sesame Street Live production
continues long after preschool. Adults will appreciate the high-tech
stagecraft, cleverly written scripts, and music they'll recognize and enjoy
sharing with children, such as Home on the Range, Down on the Corner and Give
a Little Love. "When Elmo Grows Up" features nearly two dozen songs, including
classics that children will love to sing along with such as I Love Trash and
Itsy Bitsy Spider.
