Muppets Head to U.S. Military Bases

Jun 26, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Sesame Workshop, in association with the United Service Organizations, will begin a traveling Muppet USO show for soldiers and military families across the country.
“The Sesame Street Experience for Military Families” will be produced by VEE Corp. as part of an outreach program by the nonprofit Sesame Workshop supporting children and families affected by deployment, as well as those with family members suffering from combat injuries.
The tour will feature live versions of the materials from “Talk, Listen, Connect: Deployments, Homecomings, Changes,” a multimedia outreach kit featuring the Muppets that was created to help military families deal with the challenges of having a deployed or injured family member.
“‘The Sesame Street Experience for Military Families’ brings the ‘Talk, Listen, Connect’ DVD and materials to life, and directly to the families who face the challenges of military life each day,” said Gary E. Knell, president of Sesame Workshop, in a statement Thursday. “Our partnership with the USO further extends this initiative, visiting installations across the nation to help these families bond through emotionally difficult times, by providing an educational and entertaining show and other outreach activities they can share.”
The tour begins July 8 at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center 29 Palms in California and will stop at 43 installations across the country.
