Dec. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Life Like Touring Australia is proud to announce a big national theatre tour of the new show SESAME STREET PRESENTS ELMO’S WORLD TOUR. This new musical show, which will make stops throughout the country,  sees the Sesame Street gang going on an adventure through imagination learning how people sing and dance and say hello in different places around the world.

In an unprecedented move, Sesame Workshop granted Life Like Touring the rights to develop, write and tour a brand new Sesame Street stage show in Australia. This new production will hit the stage at some of Australia’s finest metropolitan theatres from March next year, and tour the nation to a huge number of regional centres.

Sesame Street has delighted and educated Australian children since it first began airing on ABC TV in 1971. Since that time, the popular TV series has been a mainstay not only for Australian audiences on the ABC but for countless viewers the world over who enjoy local Sesame Street programs in over 150 countries and translated into many, many languages. By 2006, Sesame Street had become "the most widely viewed children's television show in the world", with 20 international independent versions featuring locally developed Sesame Street Muppets addressing the needs of children in that country. Sesame Street has won 10 Grammy Awards and 138 Emmy Awards - more than any other children's TV program.

Life Like Touring’s Executive Producer, Luke Gallagher says, “We have been in discussions with the team at Sesame Workshop for a number of years and are excited this production is finally premiering in March 2012. Life Like Touring is delighted we can bring Elmo and many of his friends to Australian neighbourhoods in SESAME STREET PRESENTS ELMO’S WORLD TOUR. Our company has been fortunate to work with and launch theatre productions for many amazing international children’s brands over the years. We are honoured to have earned the trust of the team at Sesame Workshop and we’re thrilled that, once again, Australian children will be the first to see a beautiful new musical stage show.”

In SESAME STREET PRESENTS ELMO’S WORLD TOUR, the Sesame Street gang - Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, Grover, Zoe and Cookie Monster - use the letters of the alphabet to navigate a voyage through imagination that sees them visiting China, Zambia, France, India and Australia! Elmo and his friends have fun learning how people sing and dance and say hello in different places around the world, but things don’t go to plan when Cookie Monster eats a letter of the alphabet. Hopefully Abby Cadabby can find the right spell to help. Along the way, audiences will also delight in hearing a sensational tale from The Count and will get to help back-packing rubber-duckies find a place to stay with Bert and Ernie.

Life Like Touring is also proud to launch a new Australian character for this show - Lady Baa-Baa – a world travelling Australian sheep with designer baa-ggage and big fleece who refuses to follow the herd.

Featuring classic Sesame Street songs alongside catchy new tunes, SESAME STREET PRESENTS ELMO’S WORLD TOUR looks set to delight Sesame Street fans of all ages.
