Having been forced to shut down last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the beloved Sesame Street Circus Spectacular is set to pop up at Waurn Ponds on Thursday, January 28 and run until Sunday, February 14, before heading to Ballarat, Warrnambool, Mt Gambier, and then to South Australia in April, with new COVID-19 protocols in place, and in close coordination with government agency guidelines.

Presented by the circus extraordinaire at Silvers, this 90-minute spectacular features all the Sesame Street characters under the big top, including Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert and Ernie, Super Grover and Big Bird. Alongside the famed characters, the circus will also feature incredible performers from Argentina, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Brazil, Morocco and more!

In a spectacular circus performance within a brand new tent with a capacity of 1000 (which was designed and developed in Italy especially for this tour and will offer everything from wind resistance to shading for guests during hot weather), Elmo, Cookie Monster, Super Grover and the Sesame Street characters all work to find their place in the circus – from clowns to daredevils to picking the circus’ new Ring Master. Combining the best of both worlds – Sesame Street and thrilling cirus performances – it’s really a show that can be enjoyed by the young, and the young at heart.

As part of the show, the one and only Big Bird will be out to meet and greet fans and pose for photos before the Show, while Cookie Monster will meet and greet fans at the end of the Sesame Street Circus Spectacular.

What’s more, almost every element within the show was newly developed for the tour, which was written and produced locally and includes the original Sesame Street voices that were recorded in New York especially for this production. How special is that?!

“We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing this incredible show back to Australian families in 2021, and can’t wait for the beloved Sesame Street characters to bring some much-needed smiles to little ones faces,” says Keith Brown, Managing Director of Showtime Attractions.

Sessions times include 10:30am, 2:30pm and 6:30pm, with some days hosting multiple shows.
