Joe Jefferson Playhouse, 11 S Carlen Street, Mobile is holding auditions for "Avenue Q" on Monday and Tuesday, June 8 and 9, 6 p.m.. Show dates are August 7-23, 2015.
Avenue Q, an American musical in two acts, is based on a book by Jeff Whitty. Music and lyrics are by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. Eric C. Browne will direct the JJP production.
A short synopsis of the play is below:
"Avenue Q is an 'autobiographical and biographical' coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Its characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by children's television programs such as PBS's Sesame Street, that they were 'special' and 'could do anything'; but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise and dismay that, in the real world, their options are limited, and they are no more 'special' than anyone else."
The musical is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors. For more information,call 471-1534.
