This laugh-out-loud musical (with a delightfully catchy score) tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Avenue Q is a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
This show contains mature content.

CAST MEMBERS will design and craft their own puppets at this Puppets and Pints Class.
Tuition fee waived for Cast members.
