Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" -Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q School Edition is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
The laugh-out-loud musical 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 neighborhood. Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Avenue Q authors created a Student Edition, maintaining the dramatic (and comedic) intention & integrity of the piece, while making it more appropriate for younger audiences and performers. Joining the Cast will be a full puppet ensemble!
