Emmy and Max are in quite a predicament. The two kids are stranded in Dragon Land. And it'll be some adventure before they can make it home.

Watch as the young kids and their dragon friends embark on a journey to try and restore power to the magical dragon scale and return home at the Dragon Tales Live: Journey to Crystal Cave, today through Sunday at the 1st Mariner Arena and May 8-11 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va.

The stage show features characters right out of the popular Dragon Tales kids' program on PBS: 6-year-old Emmy, her 4-year-old brother Max, their dragon friends Ord, Cassie, Zak and Wheezie and the wise old dragon Queztal.

The gang makes its way from Snowy Summit to the Crystal Cave, facing a variety of obstacles and interesting characters along the way.

Audience members are encouraged to sing along, dance and chant with the characters at this interactive show. Children will receive glow-in-the-dark badges to help the adventurers on their journey.

The show reinforces the importance of facing challenges and working individually and as a group to resolve them, as each character must try to overcome a challenge with the help of audience members.
