I live on AVENUE Q

I know that this news is a bit late in its arrival, (being that we are into our third week of rehearsals) but some of my readers do not follow me on Facebook. I was cast as the Bad Idea Bear (girl) in Bower City Theatre Company's production of Avenue Q! For those of you not in the know about this musical, here's some information provided by the Bower City Theatre  website;

Avenue Q

Directed by Jim Tropp

Winner of the TONY® “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. Don't miss out on this chance to save big on this long-running Broadway hit!

AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that 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. There, he meets KATE (the girl next door), ROD (the Republican), TREKKIE (the internet sexpert), LUCY THE SLUT (need we say more?), and other colorful types who help PRINCETON finally discover his purpose in life!
Avenue Q, directed by Jim Tropp will be presented March 23 – 31, 2012. Performances will be held at The Janesville Performing Arts Center, 408 South Main Street, Janesville, Wisconsin 53545. Tickets are available at the JPAC box office or by phone 608.758-0297 or online for further information please email:

Who is AVENUE Q appropriate for?
Adults love AVENUE Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. We'll try to clear that up. AVENUE Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because AVENUE Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It's hard to say what exact age is right to see AVENUE Q - parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this - if you DO bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q, they'll think you're really cool.

The character I am playing, whom I lovingly call "Bender", is so sweet that she could induce diabetic coma. Though the bears give suggestions to Princeton that could be construed as terrible ideas, when coming from soft, snuggly bears, hilarity ensues. I really look forward to being a part of this, my first "fourth-wall" production since high school *mumble mumble* years ago. For those of my readers close enough to attend, I would love to see you there.
