AVENUE Q presented by Fondren Theatre Workshop
**FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES, DAILY ONLINE SALES CLOSE TWO (2) HOURS BEFORE CURTAIN TIME, BUT UNLESS YOU SEE A "SOLD OUT" MESSAGE, TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE BOX OFFICE**
Fondren Theatre Workshop will present "AVENUE Q," the smash-hit Tony award winner for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. Smart, hilarious, risque, and full of heart, it's an explosion of upbeat energy, music, and puppets--but definitely for grown-ups! Performances will be July 22-24 and July 28-30 at the Actors Playhouse theatre facility, 121 Paul Truitt Lane, Pearl, MS. Written by co-creators Robert Lopez (co-composer for Disney's "Frozen") and Jeff Marx, the play can be described as a Sesame Street*-meets-South Park experience. Princeton, Gary Coleman (yes, that one!), Christmas Eve and their new-found friends (played by talented actors and puppets), valiantly seek jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. This upbeat musical is definitely for grown-ups, and tackles tough subjects like racism, unemployment, homosexuality, homelessness, love and lust with puppets, monsters, video, and catchy tunes.
ADVISORY: THIS PLAY CONTAINS MATURE LANGUAGE AND SUBJECT MATTER AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
FTW is pleased to be in residence again at Actor's Playhouse, where they previously co-produced "Cabaret" and Stephen Sondheim's "Company." The show will be directed by Josh Harris, with music direction by Tommy Pittman.
