RCF announces auditions for the first show of our 9th season, "Avenue Q," with music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (co-composer for "Book of Mormon"), and book by Jeff Whitty and directed by Scott Randall, with music direction by Eric Bischoff. Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q 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. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.

Performances are Sept 7-23, 2018, with 8pm shows on Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays.

 

Other details:
We are in the same shopping center as the Goodwill, with our entrance in back, behind the beauty college.
