Sesame Street Live: The Power of Yet
Sesame Street Live: Make Your Magic is on tour and will be in our area starting on November 9th. This show is sure to please adults and children of all ages. In this new show, Elmo teams up with Abby and Justin, embarking on an extraordinary journey where Elmo discovers that you can do anything. For more information on the show, head over to the Sesame Street Live website.
I had the privilege of interviewing Elizabeth “Liz” Sanford this past week. She performs as Rosita during this year’s tour. She is also the Mya Monster, which is a puppet you can meet in the lobby. I really enjoyed speaking with her. The passion she has for dancing and performing was overflowing. I could tell she really was excited about this new show. Last year, she performed as Oscar the Grouch. What a change of roles, lol!
The Power of Yet
One of my big takeaways from our conversation was the last thing she said to me. I explained to her all about this website and who my readers are. Then, I asked her what was something she would want to tell my readers. Here’s what she said:
“The biggest message I’d like to share with your audience actually comes from an Elmo song. It’s call ‘the power of yet.’ Basically the song is encouragement to know that even if something doesn’t work out the first time you can keep trying and working towards your goals to make them a reality. I believe all ages need to hear that message.”
After I got off the phone with her, I looked up the song. I found an older version but I’m assuming it is the song she was talking about. What a great message for us all! Believe in yourself and work towards your dreams. Never give up on what you desire to accomplish.
Insider Things To Know
She also shared with me a little about the show and it does sound fabulous. Here are a few insider things to know:
- This is a brand new show that is fun for the whole family. It has not been shown before. Elmo wants to learn how to do magic.
- Abby wears a blue dress on the tv show. In this tour, she will be debuting a new outfit that has never been seen before.
- Liz will be working a puppet in the lobby for you to get up close to. It’s an interactive experience that all people can be part of. Be sure to go by and say “hello” to Mya Monster.
