One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure

Discover the night sky with Big Bird, Elmo and their new friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu. 

Elmo and Big Bird live in the United States and Hu Hu Zhu lives far away in China, but they discovered that they still see the same stars at night! The word for star in Chinese is “xing xing” (pronounced sing sing). How many “xing xing” do you see in this sky?

One World, One Sky is a brilliant spectacle of light and color as the furry friends watch the stars twinkle over Sesame Street. Children attending the show can interact as they watch, drawing constellations and counting the time it takes the sun to set. The show aims to nurture a child's natural sense of wonder about the night sky while forging cross-cultural connections, and bridging kids across nations through a common bond in learning about the sky together.

Geared toward children ages 3-5, but open to all ages.

Saturday 3 p.m. Matinee cost is $3 per person.
