Sesame Street Comes to Malmstrom

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Sesame street is home to our friends Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie and everyone favorite red furry monster Elmo. And today sesame street wasn't on these kids televisions, no not at Malmstrom Air Force Base our favorite Muppets were right in front of them.

The line was out the door at the base auditorium this morning for a very special guest performance.

"Elmo is here, Cookie Monster is here, Grover, Rosita and there is a very special friend named Katie who happens to be a military child herself," says USO Tour Manager, Nichole McClendon.

The characters of Sesame Street came to visit families on Malmstrom to help share with kids about moving which can be a very hard time for the kids.

"It's a live singing and dancing thank you card that we deliver to all our military families. Something that our youngest military heroes can really relate to because it deals with the fact that Katie has just found out that she and her family are about to move to another base. and that is something that all of our military families go through," adds McClendon.

Taylor Berger and Isabelle Comp are here to see a certain red colored monster. Tell me about who are you going to go see today? "We're gonna go see Elmo," says Berger.Yeah are you guys excited about that? "Yes, well a little bit," says Berger and Comp.

For young Taylor Berger this isn't her first time seeing the residents of Sesame Street, and she was very happy to see them again.

"We have the disk and I saw it when I was little," explains Berger.

The USO and Sesame Street tour to country going from base to base for many years now and we're excited to show the program in great falls for the first time.

"This particular program is really a great partnership, because Obviously sesame street knows kids and the USO knows Military. So when you put those two together you got a great result," explains McClendon.
