Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" — Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book — Avenue Q: School Edition is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. The laugh-out-loud musical 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. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Avenue Q authors created a Student Edition, maintaining the dramatic (and comedic) intention & integrity of the piece while making it more appropriate for younger audiences and performers. Joining the cast will be a full puppet ensemble!

By the author of Driving Miss Daisy, this Tony Award-winning play once again explores the lives of Jews in the American South. It is December of 1939. Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's upper-crust Freitag family is much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, Atlanta's Jewish cotillion and the social event of the season. The ensuing comedy proves both hilarious and thought-provoking as it touches on themes of assimilation, anti-Semitism, and change.

This Random World, by Steven Dietz, is about seven characters whose worlds intersect and collide as they search for deeper meaning and connection in their own lives. We follow the journey of Scottie, an aging and secretive mother, who has chosen to keep distant from her children, Beth and Tim. Beth is having a tough time connecting, while Tim is stuck in a rut. Scottie is assisted by her aide, Bernadette, who struggles to connect with her younger and free-spirited sister, Rhonda. Rounding out the cast are Claire, Tim's high school girlfriend, who lives in the past, and her current boyfriend, Gary, who is looking for a way out. In a world where it is more and more difficult to truly connect with another human being, This Random World is a beautiful, humorous, and engaging reminder to make every effort to connect to others while we still can.
