Haven Global has partnered with Showtime Attractions and Silvers Circus to bring the "Sesame Street Circus Spectacular" live show to cities across Australia and New Zealand.
The two-year tour will bring "Sesame Street" characters such as Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert, Ernie and Super Grover to the stage. The "Sesame Street" characters will be joined by performers from across the world to put on a circus-themed event with clowns and stunts. The show will be accompanied by pre-event activities including art and craft activities, a bouncy castle and ball-pit, as well as photo opportunities with Big Bird.
"We spent time in New York with the cast of 'Sesame Street,' recording their voices, making sure that each character's personality is matched to their role in this brand-new show," says Keith Brown, managing director, Showtime Attractions. "We wanted to bring an authentic
'Sesame Street' experience to our audiences, so we needed to make sure that Super Grover was part of something daring, that Elmo would be in a playful environment and that Cookie Monster would be enjoying his favorite snack."
The live tour arrives during the "Sesame Street" 50th anniversary. In honor of the landmark anniversary, the Sesame Workshop has launched various partnerships including an early education curriculum with The Primary School.
"What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of 'Sesame Street' than to bring this new adventure to Australia and New Zealand," says Ed Wells, senior vice president, international media and education, Sesame Workshop. "Our highest priority is to create deeper, richer experiences with children and their families and extend the laughter and learning of 'Sesame Street.' This incredible, all-new spectacular from Showtime Attractions, Silvers Circus and Haven Global does just that and is sure to capture the hearts of young and young-at-heart fans."
