From a press release:

Sesame Street Live’s all-new show, “Make a New Friend,” visits Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre from Friday, March 6 through Sunday, March 8. Tickets for all five afternoon and evening performances are on sale now.

A description and preview of the show follows:

No matter where you’re from or where you’ve been, everyone is special – so join in! Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby, and their Sesame Street friends welcome Chamki, Grover’s friend from India, to Sesame Street. Together, they explore the universal fun of friendship and celebrate cultural similarities, from singing and dancing, to sharing cookies!

Chamki is from far away and she’s visiting Sesame Street for just one day! Grover has a long to-do list for his friend, from kayaking to hot yoga, but Chamki is busy enjoying cookies with Cookie Monster, singing with Abby Cadabby, and doing ‘The Elmo Slide.’ Will an appearance from Super Grover get Chamki’s attention? Join the fun and make a memory with your friends and family!

“Make a New Friend” offers a fun-filled, interactive learning experience, including up-close and furry interactions on the audience floor. Like television’s “Sesame Street,” each Sesame Street Live production features timeless tunes and 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 “Count Me In” and fun new parodies of “Hot and Cold” and “Moves Like Jagger.”

Regular tickets at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre) are $16 and $22. On opening night, all seats (excluding $28 Gold Circle and $58 Sunny Seats) are $14. A facility fee of $2 will be added to all ticket prices. The Sunny Seats package features premium show seating and a pre-show meet and greet with two Sesame Street Live friends, including Elmo.
