Parents, it’s time to get ready. Sesame Street Live! is coming, in 2024, to a city near you.

The beloved PBS

-born characters, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster, are touring at least 58 cities in both the United States and Canada. The multi-city tour, Sesame Street Live! Say Hello, kicks off in April 2024. This is the first time Sesame Street Workshop has paired up with Round Room Live, a production company known for its innovative shows that engage the younger set.

“We’re thrilled to combine our dedication to premium, unforgettable entertainment with the beloved characters of Sesame Street in an interactive musical adventure that will create memorable experiences for families of all ages,” said Round Room Live Co-President Stephen Shaw.

Sesame Workshop has been producing shows for over 50 years, but this is their first time working with Round Room. The leaders seem excited about the partnership. “Round Room Live has a history of working with new and iconic properties to create engaging and thrilling live events. We can’t wait for families and friends to enjoy this brand-new Sesame Street show filled with song, dance, and a few fun and furry surprises.”

The crew heads to locales as varied as New York City, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Toledo, Duluth, Minnesota and Lowell, Massachusetts. Interestingly, it visits Joliet, Illinois instead of Chicago; the two cities are about an hour apart from each other.

The reasons for this choice are so children can experience the event in a more intimate setting. The interactive show travels to slightly smaller theaters so children can get up close and personal with their favorite characters.

“We are of a conviction that children who are sitting in the back row of a building that is greater in size than 3000 seats are not going to have a great time,” said Round Room Live in a statement. “Simply the distance from the stage is going to be an issue. We prefer to perform more high-quality shows that are enjoyable by everyone no matter where their seats are located. This keeps not only the children but the parents happy as well.”

Previous Round Room productions include Blippi: The Wonderful World Tour, Blippi The Musical ( which garnered a 2023 Olivier Award nomination for Best Family production), Peppa Pig Live, Baby Shark Live!, and Blue’s Clues & You! Live On Stage. Round Room also produces Formula 1: The Exhibition Jurassic World: The Exhibition, Mandela: The Official Exhibition, and Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free.

Ticket prices for Sesame Street Live! Say Hello! are variable. In some venues, like in Boston, where tickets are sold by the vendor, tickets range up to $84. But in Minneapolis, tickets are sold by Ticketmaster and can start at $120 for floor level seats. In Amarillo, Texas, the tickets range up to $68. All tickets can be found at SesameStreetLive.com
