Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend Now at the Fox Theatre

Disclosure: Olympia Entertainment has provided me with tickets to Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend in exchange for promotion. All opinions are my own.

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend is coming to Detroit. It will be at the Fox Theatre from January 26, 2017 through February 12, 2017. I loved Sesame Street as a child. I remember attending Sesame Street Live with my little sister when I was about my daughter’s age (11). This time around, I’m taking my sister again with her 2 year old while my 11 year old is at school.

Friends Old & New Meet on Sesame Street for Detroit’s Family Favorite Tradition


No matter where you’re from or where you’ve been, everyone is special – so join in! Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby, and their Sesame Street friends welcome Chamki, Grover’s friend from India, to Sesame Street. Together, they explore the universal fun of friendship and celebrate cultural similarities, from singing and dancing, to sharing cookies! Making its annual return, Sesame Street Live will visit the Fox Theatre from Thursday, January 26 through Sunday, February 12 with “Make A New Friend”. 

Tickets ($17, $25, $35 Gold Circle and $70 Sunny Seats***) are on sale now and can be purchased at, the Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena box offices, Hockeytown Authentics in Troy (without service charge) at all Ticketmaster locations and To charge tickets by phone, call (800) 745-3000.

Chamki is from far away and she’s visiting Sesame Street for just one day! Grover has a long to-do list for his friend, from kayaking to hot yoga, but Chamki is busy enjoying cookies with Cookie Monster, singing with Abby Cadabby, and doing ‘The Elmo Slide.’ Will an appearance from Super Grover get Chamki’s attention? Join the fun and create memories with your friends and family!

Sesame Street Live “Make a New Friend” offers a fun-filled, interactive learning experience, including up-close and furry interactions on the audience floor! Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless tunes and lessons for all ages. The universal appeal of each Broadway-quality musical production continues long after preschool. Adults will appreciate the high-tech stagecraft, cleverly written script, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as “Count Me In,” and fun new parodies of “Hot and Cold,” and “Moves Like Jagger.”

  1. We love it! I have been taking my grandkids to Sesame Street for 8 years now! We are now up to 6 grandkids 8 and under and about to add #7 in January 2017. Plan on going again this year! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Is Elmo classic? I think of Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, Oscar, Bert, Ernie, the Count, etc – the ones I grew up with as the classic.

    Ok, I did some research & he was around since the early 70s, as a background character called Baby Monster. He became Elmo with his personality & started being a focus character in 1984.

  3. Catherine Buell

    This would be FABULOUS to take my son and his best friend with his mom. Great giveaway!

  4. This would be great to win for my toddler she was still pretty little last year when we took her. This would be a great b day gift. She loves elmo soo much.
