Sesame Street Circus comes to Warrnambool


The magic of Sesame Street will be brought to life for Warrnambool audiences with a brand-new show.

The Sesame Street Circus Spectacular had its successful Australian premiere in Melbourne, and will now travel to Warrnambool for shows in March 2020.

The 90-minute show will feature Sesame Street favourites such as Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert, Ernie, and Super Grover.

Performers will come from Australia and also internationally from Switzerland, Argentina, Colombia, Morocco, Brazil, and Ethiopia.

Showtime Attractions' Keith Brown said it was a brand-new family entertainment experience. He said,

We spent time in New York with the cast of Sesame Street, recording their voices, making sure that each character's personality is matched to their role in this brand-new show.

"We wanted to bring an authentic Sesame Street experience to our audiences, so we needed to make sure that Super Grover was part of something daring, that Elmo would be in a playful environment and that Cookie Monster would be enjoying his favorited snack."

Patrons will be greeted by Cookie Monster at Elmo's World on arrival, where children can have fun in the ball pit before the show starts.

Afterwards, Big Bird will be around to greet fans and pose for photos.

Sesame Workshop senior vice-president and head of international media and education Ed Wells said what better way to celebrate the show's 50thanniversary than bringing a new adventure to Australia and New Zealand.

Tickets range from $30 to $80 to adults and $25 to $80 for children, with tickets to be available through Ticketmaster.

The circus tent will be erected adjacent to Gateway Plaza Warrnambool with performances starting from Friday 13th March till Sunday the 22nd
