Sesame Street Circus Spectacular returns to Ballarat
February 25, 2021

With new COVID-19 protocols in place, and in close coordination with government agency guidelines, the Sesame Street Circus Spectacular will return to entertain Ballarat audiences from 4th March for an extended season before making its way to South Australia from April.

Under the big top, this 90-minute spectacular features death-defying stunts, clowns, and favourite Sesame Street characters including Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert and Ernie, Super Grover and Big Bird, with performers from Argentina, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Brazil and Morocco.

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.

Showtime Attractions Managing Director, Keith Brown enthuses “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.

The shows dates are:
Ballarat, Victoria: Thursday 4th March – Sunday 28th March 2021
Adelaide, South Australia: Thursday 1st April – Sunday 2nd May 2021
Elizabeth, South Australia: Thursday 6th May – Sunday 23rd May 2021
