Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. This laugh-out-loud musical tells the story of Princeton, a recent college grad who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents may 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.

This slightly censored version of the Broadway hit musical comedy  has all of the laughs and life lessons but a little less lewdness – and, of course, the puppets! Avenue Q: School Edition features a memorable score by Tony-winning composers Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx.  Rated PG-13, recommend for young teens and older. Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. (But we promise you this - if you DO bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q, they'll think you're pretty cool).

Show times 7:30 pm Friday & Saturday and 3 pm Sunday.

Student Matinee: 10 am Thursday, February 14, 2013
