Colorful comedy


This Tony-award winning musical features puppets, with their masters in full view, but don’t let the furry little guys fool you – these fellows are more like the older dudes on Fraggle Rock than the youngin’s on Sesame Street. And their bite of sarcasm and realism makes this an adult-audience-only show. The story follows recent college graduate, Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment on Avenue Q littered with interesting characters who in the end help him find his purpose in life. The local cast trained for weeks to hone their puppetry skills and includes: Nathan Peak as Princeton, Allison Campbell as Kat Monster, Ralph Shank as Trekkie Monster; and Vanessa Ferguson as Lucy the Slut. Mac Warren directs. Sponsored by ADHD Productions, Corporation Service Company, 99.7 KISS FM and 96.7 The BOSS.
