Princeton, a college graduate with no job or prospects, moves into a run-down New York brownstone in search of his life’s purpose, meets Kate, who may be his true love, and learns valuable life lessons from his eccentric neighbors. Sounds like a typical life story – except Princeton is a puppet, Kate is a monster, and the neighbors include a wide assortment of characters, human and otherwise! Journey with us along Avenue Q, a place that will never be mistaken for Sesame Street! Directed by Brad Friedman, musical direction by Larry Rice, choreography by Robyn Tribuzi.

Charlie Baker, a big-hearted but painfully shy Englishman, escapes from his disappointing life to a small inn in a remote part of Georgia, pretending he speaks no English in order to avoid interacting with the natives, But what happens when Charlie has to communicate in order to warn the good folks of Tilghman County of a dastardly plot by the local Klan? And what of the pretty young woman for whom he has started to develop feelings? Charlie’s plan to undo the consequences of his lie unfolds in hilarious fashion, turning a chump into a champion in this award-winning comedy.
Directed by Brad Friedman.
