Sesame Street characters ‘Can’t Stop Singing’

20130927 sesame-street-cant-stop-singingHIDALGO - The loveable characters of Sesame Street “Can’t Stop Singing” and they’re doing it all the way to the Rio Grande Valley for seven performances in a four-day stop at State Farm Arena. Tickets are on sale for the shows which run from Nov. 21 through 24 with an array of show times and special offers.

Kids of all ages can join in the fun when Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Murray and other favorite Sesame Street friends bring the magic of music to life on stages big and small – and into the audience. When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage.

Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along. The audience will learn why it feels good to sing a song and why it feels good to stop.

Kids learn while watching the television show. The learning experience doesn’t stop with the live performance, including up-close and personal interactions on the audience floor.

It’s an evening of timeless lessons for all ages with a Broadway-quality musical appeal and high-tech stagecraft to grab the attention of everyone.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Thursday with a special opening night offer; 10:30 a.m., with a kids’ matinee offer, and 7 p.m. on Friday; 2 and 5:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 1 and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.  

Tickets are $15 and $23, opening night seats are $13, and kids’ matinee tickets are $10 and open to school or daycare groups of 10 or more.

A limited number of $28 Gold Circle and $52 Sunny Seats are available at all shows. Sunny Seats feature VIP seats and a pre-show meet-and-greet with two Sesame Street Live friends. 

For more information, call 843-6688. To purchase tickets, go to or call 800-745-3000. State Farm Arena is located at 2600 North 10th Street in Hidalgo.
