Laugh out loud with Avenue Q - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

Laugh out loud with Avenue Q

Posted: Updated:

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Avenue Q is a laugh out loud musical that uses muppet-style puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors to tell the all too familiar story of a recent college grad named Princeton.

Princeton moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q where he meets Kate (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet sexpert), and other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life.

On Thursday, a few of the cast members stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the upcoming performances, which will be held at The Armory in Janesville July 29 through August 14.

Avenue Q is great for adults of all ages and even young adults in high school because it’s about real life. It’s not appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web.   Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. If you are unsure, videos from previous productions are available on YouTube to give you a little taste of the show.

Dinner guests should arrive no later than one hour before listed show time. Cocktail hour for evening performances begins at 6pm with dinner served at 6:30. Matinee performance buffet meals are served beginning at noon. Guests purchasing show-only tickets should arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to show time.
