Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents the Tony-winning musical comedy "Avenue Q" at the Vandivort Center Theatre, 305 E. Walnut 4th floor, November 16 through December 9. Rick Dines directs this laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There he meets Kate, the girl next door, Rod, the closeted Republican, former child star Gary Coleman and a bunch of other colorful types who help Princeton discover his purpose in life. Originally conceived as a TV series, "Avenue Q" was revamped for the stage in 2002 and eventually became one of the longest-running Broadway shows in history. It's famous for its use of puppets alongside human actors. The producers warn that this production contains adult language, adult content... and full puppet nudity. The cast includes Margaret Howard, Brandon Looney, Kyle Loudis, James Brandon Martin, and two Actors Equity members, Nathan Shelton and Maggie Marlin. The production's four-week run starts Friday Nov.16 at 7:30pm; showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:00pm through December 9.
