by Lara CONGRATULATIONS JONATHAN - you won the tickets!
I, like many of you I'm sure, grew up on Sesame Street - I can still sing along to countless tunes from my youth and Sesame Street Old School was at the top of my Christmas list the year it came out. It's nostalgic for me and I admit that when Sesame Street is on for the kids, I pay a little bit more attention than I do to most of the other shows ;)
When the opportunity to tell you about (and give you a chance to win tickets to!) the Sesame Street Live show that's coming to Ottawa came up, we jumped on the chance. Here's a little information about it, and make sure to scroll down to the end to enter to win a 4-pack of tickets! Brie and I will be there - we hope to see you too!
The Red Monster with a Green Thumb Arrives in Ottawa for four shows beginning Jan. 22, 2011
(Ottawa) - 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 musical adventure as they help Elmo find a new home for Sunny when Sesame Street Live “Elmo’s Green Thumb” performs at Scotiabank Place on Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011 at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased online at Capitaltickets.ca; by phone at 613-599-FANS (3267) or 1-877-788-FANS (3267); in person at The Sens Store at Rideau Centre and Place d’Orléans, any Ottawa Sports Experts location, Les Galeries de Hull and at the Scotiabank Place box office.
Sesame Street Live “Elmo’s Green Thumb” tickets are $55 (Sunny Seats, which are located in the front row and include a pre-show meet and greet with two Sesame Street friends), $35, $28, $22, and $15 for all shows. Prices include all taxes but exclude CRF and convenience charges.
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.”
We have a family four pack of tickets in the 100 level to the Saturday January 22 at 11 am performance to give away! Simply leave us a comment telling us who your favourite Sesame Street character is and you'll be entered.
Contest closes January 14 at 11pm. Good luck!
