Sesame Street STILL looking for twins for upcoming season

{RE-Posted on behalf of Theresa Anderson, Child Talent Coordinator, Sesame Street}

World Renowned Children?s Television Series, Sesame Street, Casting Guatemalan Twin Babies

Sesame Street, produced by the nonprofit educational organization Sesame Workshop, is looking to cast male or female twin babies of Guatemalan decent for its 37th season. The children need to be between the ages of 6-12 months and available to be in New York City mid-October once taping begins. It is preferred that the families live in the surrounding tri-state area, Pennsylvania or Maryland.

If you are interested and for more information please contact:
Theresa Anderson
Child Talent Coordinator

Note from Kelly: is not involved in the selection/casting of the children. However, I did speak with Theresa and she will consider individual children.
UPDATE 10/6 - Twins were selected back around our first posting, however, it does not appear that they will be home in time for the filming in December. We hope that they come home soon!

I applaud the interest of Sesame Street in portraying children adopted from Guatemala. I also find it interesting that Sesame Workshop is a corporate sponsor of UNICEF, which has an agenda against intercountry adoptions from Guatemala!

Maura, could I ask from what source you received this information, that Sesame Workshop is a corporate sponsor of UNICEF? I have investigated myself and have been unable to confirm. Thank you.
