"The combination of both human and puppet characters makes it okay to say and sing the crude humour present in the show," Jayde said. "Avenue Q is fun and wild with catchy songs that make you want to join in.
"It has hilarious, sad and 'OMG you just said that!' moments, which just made me want to bring this musical to life. The combination of different types of characters and amazing music makes you want to be involved in the show."
"The first time anyone works with puppets is a challenge, from the actors' movements through to connecting with the audience and others on stage," Jayde said. "The actors and puppets need to come together as one person so the audience is watching one entity, not two.
"On top of that, you have to add dance moves into the mix, making it a Ben Hur-type challenge – but my cast is up to it. You also need to draw that fine line between making fun of things but not completely offending the audience."
