PSU Theatre presents AvenueQ April 9-13

 PLYMOUTH — The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Plymouth State University will present Jeff Whitty's AvenueQ April 9-13 in the studio theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts.

Using cast members and a host of puppets with unconcealed puppeteers, this coming-of-age parable for adult audiences presents a look at life post college, addressing and satirizing issues and anxieties of entering adulthood.

In the play, Princeton, a recent college graduate, moves to an outer borough of New York to find a job and, hopefully, meaning in his life. Although he wants to live on Avenue A with people who have money, prestige and power, he finds himself on Avenue Q, which is peopled with colorful characters, all of whom are having a hard time making it in life.

Faculty producing the show are Fran Page'05, director; Robin Marcotte'00, choreography and puppetry and Emily Jaworski, music.

Kayla Fernekees, a senior theatre arts major from Salem is stage manager and Catherine Jacobs, a junior theatre arts majors from Milton is assistant stage manager.

Contemporary humor and references bring light to modern issues such as marriage, sexuality, racism, poverty, love and femininity, with song titles like "What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?" "If You Were Gay," "Mix Tape," "Fantasies Come True" and "There's a Fine, Fine, Line."

New York Times theatre critic Ben Brantley called AvenueQ a "... savvy, sassy and eminently likeable breakthrough musical."

Performances are April 9–12 at 8 p.m.; April 12 and 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $21 for adults, $17 for seniors and $15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.

This show features mature language and content and is not intended for children.
