Los Alamos Little Theatre will hold a play reading for “Avenue Q” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 7, in the Green Room at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar St.
“Avenue Q,” a multi-Tony Award-winning musical, will be performed at LALT in May as a joint production with the Dixon Community Players. Auditions are Jan. 17 in Dixon, and Jan. 18 and 19 in Los Alamos.
The play features puppet characters interacting with human characters in a Sesame Street-like vibe. But the lessons these characters learn have more to do with the travails of young adults seeking employment, affordable housing and a greater purpose in life.
At the reading, director Holly Haas will have some of the puppets for people to see and handle and will play songs from the show. A limited number of scripts will be available for people to share and read from.
