The Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families is traveling tour that goes across the globe that entertains military families since June 2008.
During this season of the tour audiences will meet a new character named Katie – a military child relocating to a new home. With the help of Elmo and other Sesame pals, Katie opens up about her fears and excitement as she deals with change and making new friends. The new show is headed to Alaska in late April on an around-the-world tour, and features a 25-minute high-energy character performance with special giveaways and vital outreach materials for those who attend.
“Sesame Workshop is proud to be able to bring such an invaluable resource to military families around the world,” said Gary E. Knell, Sesame Workshop CEO and President. “Our latest show kicks off with a new character, a child who is adjusting to a move to a new location, something many of us can relate to. We are thrilled that the First Lady and Dr. Biden have chosen to highlight and promote our efforts to military families as we begin the next phase in our program.”
