AUDITION NOTICE!

Footlighters Theater in Berwyn, PA is excited to announce open auditions for the second show in their 91st season “Avenue A.”

There’s more fuzz to love when our badly-behaved puppet friends return! This R-rated, laugh-out-loud look at life after college packs more purposeful punch and candid heart than ever before. Winning the Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, Avenue Q is a story about a recent college grad making his way through life in New York City. Inspired by the children show, Sesame Street, Avenue Q creates a puppet filled world that reflects on the troubles of adulthood with many hilarious upbeat songs.
