Relive everything you loved about puppets as a child, but with a much more adult feel this February, with Shoebox Theatre Company’s production of Avenue Q!

Winner of the Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, the hilarious Avenue Q tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate trying to find his way in the world.

Settling in New York City all the way out on Avenue Q (he couldn’t afford anything better), we are introduced to fresh-faced Princeton as he struggles to find his purpose: meeting friends, finding love, losing love, and finding it again, along the way.

Inspired by the show’s you loved as a child, Avenue Q creates a puppet-filled world that is more reflective of the difficult, adult-realities that we face when we learn that real life isn’t as simple as we dreamed it might be – but perhaps, life is all the more colourful and worthwhile for it.

60% foam rubber, 40% adult content and 100% laughs, join us for this adult musical comedy.



This project was made possible by the Australia Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
This production is assisted by Toowoomba Regional Council through its Community Access Fund.
