- VEE Corporation is proud to raise the curtain for the 30th season of its world renowned Sesame Street live touring productions. As the live stage show licensee of Sesame Street Workshop (the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street), VEE will present its 100th tour in Corpus Christi when the stage lights come up on "1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends". The show plays American Bank Center Selena Auditorium from Tuesday, March 2 and Wednesday, March 3. Tickets for all five performances go on sale Monday, January 18 at 10:00am.
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."
Show Times are Tuesday, March 2nd at 4pm & 7:30pm and Wednesday, March 3rd at 10:30am, 4pm and 7:30pm.
Tickets are $10.00, $13.00 and $18.00. A limited number of $25 Gold Circle seats are also available. Opening night, all seats (excluding Gold Circle) are $9.00. Additional fees may apply.
