Lower Ossington Theatre is casting specific roles in our upcoming production of AVENUE Q: The Musical
Described by some as "Sesame Street for adults," this laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on AVENUE Q.
Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet entrepreneur), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Directed by: Seanna Kennedy Choreographed by: Michele Shuster Musical Direction by: Mike Ross
