This past weekend I took my little guy to see Sesame Street Live! Make Your Magic at the Eagle Bank arena in Fairfax. Teddy is a huge fan of Elmo and he loved the show. It is geared towards children ages 1-6 and includes multiple acts and engaging visuals to keep children’s attention. The performance had great music and the kids loved to sing along and dance in front of their seats or in the aisles.
The show begins when magician extraordinaire Justin visits Sesame Street to put on a magic show. Elmo wants to be a part of the show. But there’s one problem…Elmo doesn’t know how to do magic! Through Justin’s encouragement to practice, work hard and never give up, Elmo embarks on an extraordinary journey. He learns that it’s okay to make mistakes and that magic can be found anywhere when you believe in yourself and the power of what’s yet to be.
The performance includes all the favorite Sesame Street characters including Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Grover, and Big Bird. It is an inspirational introduction to live theater for little ones and families to enjoy.
The show was about 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission. If you have small children, Sesame Street Live! Make Your Magic is a Must!
