“ELMO MAKES MUSIC” Fun & Furry Musicians Arrive in Dubai on September 29


DUBAI 23rd July 2014 By: Zulfiqar Shah
Mark your calendar for a musical event like no other—monsters making music!  Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their Sesame Street friends are taking to the stage to share their love of music in Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music” at The Madinat Jumeirah Theatre from Monday, Sept.29 through Saturday, Oct. 4, brought to you by DNA PR & Events. Tickets for all 14 performances go on sale in August.

Abby Cadabby loves to sing and wants to start a new band on Sesame Street!  Join the fun as Abby, Elmo and friends discover ‘instruments’ they never knew existed…pots and spoons, trash can lids, and even cookie jars!  Everyone’s favorite fun, furry and feathered friends teach children that we can make and enjoy beautiful music together.

Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless lessons for all ages.  Through the razzle-dazzle of this musical Broadway-quality musical production, children learn about patience, acceptance and teamwork.  The universal appeal of a Sesame Street Live production continues long after preschool.  Adults will appreciate the high-tech stagecraft, cleverly written scripts, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as “The Hustle,” “You Should Be Dancing” and “Rockin’ Robin.”  “Elmo Makes Music” features nearly two dozen songs, including classics that children will love to sing along with such as “C Is for Cookie” and “The Alphabet Song.”
