‘Avenue Q’ coming to the Springville Center for the Arts
Springville Center for the Arts will present the musical “Avenue Q” from Thursday, July 26 – Aug. 5.
“Avenue Q” is the winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for best musical, best score and best book.
A group of high school and college-age young people involved in the Students Loving Art and Music program will perform the show. The cast is made up of both human and puppet characters.
In the play, Princeton moves into a shabby apartment on Avenue Q and discovers that he is right at home with his neighbors. Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates and their purpose in life.
The show was originally conceived as a television series. Creators Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx said they drew a lot of inspiration from Sesame Street.
This is a modified version from what played on Broadway; it is rated PG-13 for adult content and some language.
Tickets are on sale now at www.springvillearts.org and may also be obtained by calling 592-9038.
The first Thursday is “Pay What You Can With a Can” night. Patrons may pay any amount with a nonperishable donation to a local food pantry.
The show runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. until Aug. 5.
