1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends

Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) - "1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends" Elmo, Abby Cadabby & Friends arrive in Honolulu on July 15.  Where can your imagination take you? Anywhere you want to be! Audiences in Honolulu are invited to make a world of adventure come to life with Elmo, Abby Cadabby and friends as the stage lights come up on Sesame Street Live "1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends". This imagination-inspired musical will make a stop at Blaisdell Concert Hall from Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 24. Tickets for all 16 performances go on sale Monday, May 9 at 10 a.m. *All tickets for opening night $12! Some restrictions apply.*

The magical journey begins as Sesame Street's mail carrier, Sam, stops by to deliver special postcards from far-away places. When Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and friends wish to visit the exciting locations, Sam shares her secret on how they can – it's as easy as counting "1-2-3 Imagine!" Ernie's imagination takes him to the high seas to captain the 'Good Ship Rubber Duckie', Elmo dances to the rhythm of the African rainforest and Bert meets an octopus who has the blues. It's a story of adventure and fun that teaches children they can be anyone, do anything and go anywhere with the power of imagination.

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 "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon," "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" and "Surfin' Safari."
