Bonte Avond in Sesamstraat (A Night Play on Sesame Street) was a Sesamstraat Theater show which premiered in 2016. It was the sixth live show based on Sesamstraat.

The show was specially written and performed in the Netherlands to celebrate Sesamstraat's 40th anniversary. It ran from September 2016 until December 2016. This project didn't go through the original Sesamstraat show. Because of that, the original voices didn't want to get involved, and new voice actors, that came close to the original voices, were used for the production.

The Sesamstraat residents come up with a brand new festive performance for theater, because Sesamstraat has existed in the Netherlands for 40 years! In this comic, warm and cheerful show with many beautiful songs, the Sesamstraat residents are also seeking their own talent. Everyone wants to give a nice appearance and has its own way to achieve this. They discover their own talents to ensure a memorable celebration at the end of their performance.
