Maine children can boogy and shake with Elmo and his friends once again this fall when Sesame Street Live’s “Let’s Dance!” performance returns to the Cross Insurance Center.

This is the show’s second stop at the new auditorium in Bangor and shows are scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 14 and Wednesday, Oct. 15.

The interactive song and dance experience includes two live performers and story lines about Elmo using his imagination to “do the robot,” Cookie teaching make believe feet to dance and a performance of “Shake Your Head One Time” with Ernie and other characters dancing with the audience.

Similar to the television show, Sesame Street Live performances include songs and lessons designed for children of all ages. However, according to a press release from Sesame Street, adults will also enjoy the “professional staging, cleverly written script, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children.”

Tickets for all three performances are on sale now and more information is available on the Sesame Street website, sesamestreetlive.com.
