Elmo's going green

June 18, 2009 4:34:42 PM PDT
Elmo goes green in his garden and introduces us to his newest friend, Sunflower.

The Red Monster with a Green Thumb Arrives in Oakland today!

Sunny isn't just the weather forecast on Sesame Street - it's also the name of Elmo's sunflower friend! Join all your favorite friends on an amazing adventure as they help Elmo find a new home for Sunny when Sesame Street Live "Elmo's Green Thumb" performs at ORACLE Arena from Thursday, June 18 through Sunday, June 21. Tickets for all seven performances are on sale now!

Elmo has raised his sunflower, Sunny, from a seed, but his floral friend has outgrown the flower pot. Elmo and friends find Big Bird's garden the ideal place for Sunny to flourish and grow but they are too excited to wait. Rather than let Sunny follow nature's course, Abby Cadabby, Sesame Street's fairy-in-training, casts a spell to make Sunny grow. The spell does just the opposite and, instead of growing, Elmo and all of his friends shrink! While Abby searches for just the right words to reverse the spell, Elmo, Zoe, Telly and friends explore Big Bird's garden from a smaller perspective and learn some big lessons about patience, overcoming their fears and appreciating the role that each creature plays in our ecosystem - from dancing ladybugs and beautiful butterflies to grouchy beetles that scavenge the garden floor. Will being small help Sunny grow tall? It's a fresh, original Sesame Street Live on a whole new scale!

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 "Ladybug Picnic," "Inch by Inch" and "I Love Trash."
