Penn State Centre Stage To Perform ‘Avenue Q’

Penn State Centre Stage will perform the popular Broadway musical “Avenue Q” for the next week and half. The show opens tonight at 7:30 p.m. with a preview show at the Playhouse Theatre.

Penn State students, faculty, and Actors’ Equity performers are featured in this production of the Tony-award winning musical. The show is directed by Courtney Young, a second-year candidate for a Master of Fine Arts degree.

“Avenue Q” is a two-act Broadway coming-of-age story featuring puppets — with their infamous unconcealed puppeteers — that satirizes children’s shows like Sesame Street. Instead of feel-good lessons, it focuses on the issues and hardships of becoming an adult.

Matinees will take place on Feb. 21 and 28 at 2 p.m., and evening performances at 7:30 p.m. will show from Feb. 20 to 28.

Preview and matinee performances cost $18, and evening performances cost $25. Student tickets cost $12 with a valid Penn State student ID. Tickets are available at Penn State Tickets Downtown, Eisenhower Auditorium, the Bryce Jordan Center, or by calling 814-863-0255 or 800-ARTS-TIX.
