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 young’ns 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. Members of the local cast trained for weeks to hone their puppetry skills. They include: 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.
