Albany-- Some top-notch stars are visiting Albany.

These pre-kindergartners, along with Mayor Tommy Coleman, helped welcome Big Bird and Cookie Monster to town. The fans were pretty excited to meet the famous Sesame Street duo in person.

Four-year-old Kiara Cross says she stayed up all night thinking about it, "Oh, dreaming about Sesame Street and cookies and milk and seeing Big Bird and Cookie Monster."

Big Bird, Cookie Monster and all their Sesame Street friends will be performing favorite songs at the Civic Center. Shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Showtime Friday is at 7:00 p.m. Shows Saturday and Sunday are at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $17.50, $14.50, and $11.50. Kids 12-years-old and younger get $1.50 off the ticket price. Groups of 15 and more get $2.00 off the ticket price.
