Please note that Avenue Q contains material of an adult nature and is not suitable for younger children.
UWS/RAFT are proud to present Avenue Q, the award-winning, laugh-out-loud musical, with music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, from the book by Jeff Whitty. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
Filled with gut-busting humour and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique musical that has quickly become a favourite for audiences everywhere. The show tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighbourhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Avenue Q has achieved great acclaim worldwide as winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is presented in a way similar to a beloved children’s show – a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
