Three Time Tony Award Winning Musical AVENUE Q

MIDLAND, Mich., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Have you heard what all the "fuzz" is about? Center Stage Theatre presents Tony Award-winning musical-comedy, Avenue Q onstage at Midland Center for the Arts, 1801 W. St. Andrews Rd., Midland, MI., January 11-26, 2013.

Winner of the Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, this hilarious musical is not a typical theatrical choice. The glimpse of New York City life Avenue Q brings to the stage may make you blush.

"Though Avenue Q is a bit risque, we think it's important to bring a show like this to Midland as a commentary on the challenges of young professionals," says Midland Center for the Arts CEO, Mike Hayes.

This show brings colorful and quirky characters – both human and puppet – to play out challenges faced by today's young adults. You'll laugh-out-loud as recent college graduate, Princeton tries to land a job, pay bills, find his meaning in life, and figure out exactly what you're supposed to do with a BA in English.

"Avenue Q is such a fresh new musical, and I'm so happy Midland Center for the Arts has decided to produce it," says Avenue Q director, Bill Anderson Jr. "I've wanted to direct it for a long time. We've been having a blast in rehearsals, and I can't believe the amount of talented and committed actors we have in this area! Everyone is giving 100% to their roles and knocking it out of the ballpark."

Book by Jeff Witty; music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. Directed by Bill Anderson, Jr.

This production features a cast of veteran actors and newcomers including, Andrew Southwell (Princeton), Marci Rogers (Lucy the Slut), Stephen Fort (Trekkie Monster), Cara Baker (Christmas Eve), Kyle Bagnall (Nicky), Megan Ellis (Mrs. T), Robert Sandoval (Brian), Adam Gardener (Rod), Stephanie Mattos (Gary Coleman), Katie Hicks and Kate Fort (Bad Idea Bears) and Heidi Bethune (Kate Monster). 

Totally hilarious and a bit rude, this show is perfect for anyone who has had big ideas and a tiny bank account.
