(Yadkinville, NC) – Avenue Q , the R-rated puppet show that will make you lose your stuffing, is back by popular demand at the Willingham Theater this spring.

A story about a young puppet finding his purpose in New York
Princeton is an average 21 year-old puppet arriving in New York. He’s just graduated college and taken his first steps into adulthood, but without any skills, experience, or purpose to speak of, he’ll get sidetracked juggling real-life challenges like relationships and Monster-Puppet race relations. Packed with side-splitting songs like “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist” and “The Internet is for Porn,” Avenue Q is lined with heart and with laughs. Avenue Q is a musical comedy filled with fun, fancy, and felt that will leave audiences wanting more.
