Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG-13
A puppet-filled comedy follows a group of 20-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. (ADAPTED FOR HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMERS)
Winner of the TONY "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q School Editionis 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 School Editionis
a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences
everywhere. Because the original Avenue Q
has some content elements that have previously made it a difficult
choice for some high school productions, MTI has worked with the Avenue Q
authors to create an adaptation that maintains the dramatic intention
and integrity of the piece, while editing it to make it more appropriate
for high school audiences and performers.

The original production of "Songs for a New World" at the WPA theatre was directed by Harold Prince’s daughter, Daisy.
