Super Grover needs help — and it’s Elmo and the Fabulous Five to the rescue when the musical production "Elmo’s Super Heroes" takes the stage in the Stanley Theatre at 11:30 a.m. and 3 p .m. Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $13, $17 and $20. A facility fee of $1.50 will be added to all ticket prices. Additional fees and discounts may apply at the Stanley Box Office and Ticketmaster.
Super Grover has lost his super-ness and Sesame Street needs a hero! Never fear, the fabulous five Super Heroes are here — featuring Elmo as Captain Fuzzy! Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their friends are on a quest to put the "super" back in Super Grover. Singing and dancing their way through lessons on healthy habits, they discover how exercise, rest, nutritious food and good hygiene can save Super Grover — and turn your children into Super Heroes, too.
Sesame Street Live "Elmo’s Super Heroes" features an array of popular (and healthy) songs, many of them renditions of tunes that parents will remember and children will love: "Old MacDonald," "Splish Splash," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Sunny Days."
Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features lessons for all ages. The production will teach children lessons in healthy habits that they can use long after the show ends.
