Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancee Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod— who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate. Together, Princeton and his new friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Oxford Operatic Society is thrilled to bring this cult favourite to life in this hilarious new production.
CAUTION – This production features adult language and themes – and lots of puppets!
