BREMERTON — Elmo, Cookie Monster, and the gang are scheduled to put on two shows for military families at the Naval Base Kitsap (NBK) Bremerton Fitness Complex May 31 and June 1, as part of the “USO Experience for Military Families Tour”.
The tour focuses on showing young dependents ways of handling various realities faced by today’s service members and their families.
With “when one family member serves, the whole family serves” as their theme, Sesame Street and the USO created a new character – Katie – to model the real-life experiences of today’s military children. Designed to thank troops and their families for their service and sacrifice, the 2016 tour emphasizes the importance of adjusting to change, facing one’s fears, and embracing transition as they enter a new chapter of life.
. Moving Show, May 31, features Katie as a military child on Sesame Street who is moving to a new base.
. Transitions Show, June 1, features Katie transitioning back to civilian life at Sesame Street after living on military bases the past few years.
The shows begin at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to all military personnel and their families – first come-first served.
