Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.

“I have been a part of the PAPA program since I was 5 years old, and it’s always been such a special place for me. Participating in day camp, overnight camp, and PAPA mainstage; I have met some of my best friends and learned so much about myself. The Rep creates a wonderful, nurturing environment for kids and adults alike, allowing everyone to learn, grow, and feel accepted. The performer and person I am today reflects my time in the PAPA program. As I head to college in the fall, I am very thankful for the opportunities and love The Rep has given me. ” -Mary Jardine
“PAPA is where I found my love for theatre. Through workshop shows, I’ve gotten better at acting and singing, and learned a lot of fun theatre games. I’ve learned how to improv with confidence! Through PAPA, I’ve taken dance classes which have helped me learn the basics of dance and perfect them, which helps so much! I even got to be the dance captain of a show, which I would have never imagined to be possible. I’ve made so many incredible friends and memories, and I’ve even stage managed and helped choreograph numbers! PAPA is such a home to me and I really really recommend it to anybody who wants to get into theatre, but doesn’t really know how to start. “ -Elizabeth Westbrook
