Coming January 14th, 2017 to Atlanta’s Perimeter Mall, Elmo and Abby Cadabby are starring in 15-minute live shows from 11am-4pm! Featuring special surprises, the Sesame Street: K is for Kindness Tour, is a FREE experiential tour timed to and inspired by the new, 47th season of Sesame Street. Created especially for preschool fans and their families, this limited-engagement tour features hands-on digital learning fun, participation from local libraries, “meet and greets” with the costumed characters, and a 15-minute interactive live stage show starring the series’ beloved characters Elmo and Abby Cadabby!
A word from the tour: “Teaching kindness has been at the core of Sesame Street since it first arrived on television and remains just as important today as it was then,” says Dennis Williams, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, HBO. “The Sesame Street: K is for Kindness Tour continues in this tradition of presenting such important lessons to preschoolers. As a proud partner with Sesame Workshop and local public television stations, we will bring the joy of Sesame Street to communities and share this magical experience with children and their families who will be able to see, touch, and interact with their favorite Sesame friends up close.”
