Avenue Q, Abbey Theatre, Nuneaton, April 27-28.
Three shows for adults....one for the kids! If you loved watching Sesame Street as a child then drop in to the Abbey Theatre, Nuneaton, and watch the grown-up version.
The long-running American early-learning show, with its message that each child is special and can achieve their dreams, is given a sharp reality check with great songs and satire in Avenue Q, the latest offering from members of the Nuneaton Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society.
Oh yes, and you still get to meet the Sesame Street puppets....the ones used when Avenue Q first opened in London's West End.
Kevin Webster, who is directing this new production, said: "Our show is lively, often hilarious and always enjoyable as it bounces along from one musical number to the next.
"On stage we join Princeton as he searches for his purpose in life and, along the way, meet a variety of Sesame Street characters, each with a different story to tell."
The Abbey Theatre, in Pool Bank Street, is Nuneaton's only live public performance venue for drama, music, dance and other arts-based events.
And NAODS is the oldest amateur dramatic society in the area - it's currently celebrating 97 years of producing musicals.
Members of the society who were worried the children might want to gatecrash the three adult shows have added an extra fourth matinee performance aimed at the whole family.
The matinee is called Adventures in Time and Musicals and will take place on the afternoon of April 29, before the final performance when adults and kids will be asked to help hunt for the Sesame Street puppets which have mysteriously gone missing.
