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