Get Ready for Avenue Q!

October 5-28, 2018
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm
Additional Thursday performances 10/18 and 10/25 at 7:30 pm
Performed on the Mainstage

We're opening our 73rd season with this puppet-filled witty and raunchy musical comedy! Avenue Q follows a group of twenty-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. Recent college grad Princeton moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q – a street where puppets and humans alike live together. Princeton and his new-found friends struggle with issues of love, sex and sexuality, unemployment, and identity. Winner of the 2003 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
Leave the kids and the easily offended at home for this one! We can't stress this enough. Yes, the puppets look like they're straight from Sesame Street (and they're supposed to), but this is not a kid's show. 

AND - we're trying something new! This season, come and see our musicals on Opening Weekend or a Thursday night and save! All Opening Weekend tickets and Thursday night tickets are $26.00 - all other performances will be $30.00.

Plan to get in early to see Avenue Q!

The Tale that Inspired All About Eve

September 28-30, 2018
Friday and Saturday at 2:30 pm in 35below; Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Reuter Center on UNCA’s campus

Power! Deceit! Betrayal! Based on a story and 1940’s radio play that inspired the film All About Eve and the musical Applause, this intriguing tale focuses on a stage actress at the height of her fame and prowess who hires a seemingly mild-mannered and helpful young woman to be her secretary. The results turn into a power struggle and a figurative fight to the death. Performed as Readers Theatre as a part of The Autumn Players’ Readers Theatre Showcase Series.
