You are invited to join the Stirling Community Theatre as they present Avenue Q the outrageously funny Adult's Only version of Sesame Street. An evening of irreverent, puppet-filled fun that contains adult themes, strong language and sexual references that requires you to leave your children at home along with political correctness.
Avenue Q is the highly acclaimed winner of 3 Tony Awards including Best New Musical which featured on HBO series Big Little Lies. This hilarious modern musical comes complete with characters fighting to prove whose life sucks the most, profanity and puppet sex as proof that nothing is off-limits. You are bound to find yourself laughing at things you are not supposed to!
The story is set in a puppet-filled world which reflects puppets being friends, monsters are good and life lessons are learned along with R-rated realities that we face when we learn that real life isn't as simple as we dreamed it might be. However, Avenue Q suggests that life is more colourful and worthwhile for it.
Although this musical comedy is over 15 years old, it refuses to date over time. With the talented cast presenting the script's cheeky humour and politically incorrect catchy tunes like Everyone's a Little Bit Racist, I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today and The Internet is for P*rn, the show is bound to have audiences whistling tunes that they'll need to remember not to sing in the work staff-room or at home when their kids are around!
Director, Gordon Combes says;
[I] This is not your typial musical as it sets about doing a very clever and entertaining take-off of the popular children's TV program, [I] Sesame Street. We are giving audiences permission to laugh at naughty jokes, crazy characters and irreverent humour that has entertained audiences around the world… but would perhaps make your grandma blush.
We have gathered some of the most acclaimed and talented performers in Adelaide; Paul Sinkinson (musical director) and Sarah Williams (choreographer), along with a stellar cast of Adelaide comedic talent, to deliver this hilarious script and score that is a perfect escape from the realities of life.
MA15 recommended for audiences 15 years and older. Contains adult themes, strong language and sexual references
