‘Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend’ comes to Savannah for two shows

07 Jun 2017

Sesame Street’s Grover has a new friend from India named Chamki.

Grover joins with Elmo, Abby Cadabby and their other “Sesame Street” friends to welcome Chamki to Sesame Street. They know no matter where you’re from or where you’ve been, everyone is special.

“Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend” is coming to the Johnny Mercer Theatre at the Savannah Civic Center on June 13 and 14. Together, the “Sesame Street” gang explores the fun of friendship and celebrates cultural similarities, from singing and dancing, to sharing cookies.

The Sunny Seats package offers premium show seating and a pre-show meet and greet with two “Sesame Street Live” friends, including Elmo. Sunny Seat orders include a separate meet and greet ticket, which you’ll receive with your show tickets.

Each adult and child age 1 and older must have a ticket. All meet and greets start one hour before showtime and last 20 minutes. Meet at the Sunny Seats sign in the main lobby.

Chamki is from far away, but she’s visiting Sesame Street for just one day. Grover has a long to-do list for his friend, from kayaking to hot yoga, but Chamki is busy enjoying cookies with Cookie Monster, singing with Abby Cadabby and doing “The Elmo Slide.” Will an appearance from Super Grover get Chamki’s attention?

It’s all part of a fun-filled, interactive learning experience, including up-close interactions on the audience floor. Adults will enjoy the show, too, especially music they’ll recognize, including “Count Me In” and fun new parodies of “Hot and Cold” and “Moves Like Jagger.”
