UMW’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents the award-winning musical Avenue Q, featuring 24 puppets handmade by a team of students and faculty headed by Associate Professor of Theatre Kevin McCluskey.

Performances are at 8 p.m. November 12 – 14 and 19 – 21 and at 2 p.m. 14, 15, 21 and 22 in Klein Theatre, located in duPont Hall UMW’s Fredericksburg campus, 1301 College Ave.

The musical comedy known as the “Sesame Street for grown-ups” tells the story of Princeton, a hope-filled college graduate who moves to New York to find his purpose in life.

“After a long apartment search, he finds a home on Avenue Q, whose current residences are made up of colorful people, monsters, and puppets alike,” Alex Spence wrote. “He soon realizes that in searching for a purpose, jobs can be hard to keep, relationships are difficult to maintain, and life, in short, isn’t easy. But, with the help of his newfound friends and neighbors, he learns that life in the big city isn’t so bad after all. Avenue Q contains adult language, adult content, full frontal puppet nudity and outrageous amounts of felt.”

Tickets are $24; $20 for students, senior citizens, military and alumni. For more further information, call the Klein Theatre Box Office at 540-654-1111 or visit http://www.fredtix.com/.
