KALAMAZOO—Farmers Alley Theatre concludes its eleventh season with the puppet musical Avenue Q  running July 19 through August 11.

Join new college graduate Princeton, as he moves to the big city full of hope and optimism. As he settles into his fresh apartment on Avenue Q, Princeton meets new and exciting friends like Kate Monster, Rod, Nicky, Gary Coleman and Trekkie Monster. Together they’ll learn valuable life lessons for adulthood about racism, inclusion, homelessness and self-worth.

Avenue Q is under the direction of deputy director and Farmers Alley co-founder Robert Weiner. Lori Hatfield will serve as the production’s music director. NYC’s Harrison Bryan returns to Farmers Alley Theatre as Princeton/Rod. Cat Greenfield portrays Kate Monster/Lucy and will also serve as the production’s puppet captain, having learned under John Tartaglia with Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train Live! Stephen Anthony Grey, a fixture at Farmers Alley Theatre will play Trekkie Monster/Nicky. The rest of the cast includes Teresa Attridge, Joriah Kwame, Greg Laux, Brian Panse and Samantha Slottow.

Avenue Q contains adult language, mature themes and full puppet nudity. Not intended for children.
