Brittany Senter-Avenue Q Show Poster adj 4x6 150dpi  

Avenue Q

Directed by Jessica Lefkow
Music Directed by Jacob Kidding
Choreographed by Sandra Atkinson

Performances:
Wednesday, February 22nd, to Saturday, February 25th, 8pm to Sunday, February 26th, 2pm

Synopsis:

Written by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, Book by Jeff Whitty

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" forBest Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, andpacked with heart. The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of arecent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartmentall the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seemnice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together,Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and theirever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfullycatchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that hasquickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresseshumorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a placewhere puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. -See more at: http://www.mtishows.com/avenue-q#sthash.QG1Yc9O4.dpuf
