Music Theatre Kansas City has announced the cast for the Kansas City premiere of AVENUE Q with music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx and book by Jeff Whitty.
Directed by MTKC’s Artistic Director Julie Danielson, the production features Kayli Jamison (Kate Monster), Ryan Hruza (Princeton), Brea Clemons (Gary Coleman), Ai Vy Bui (Christmas Eve), Drew Szczesny (Brian), Mitchell Ward (Nicky/Trekkie), Callie Rodina (Lucy/Bad Idea Bear/Mrs T), and Dashawn Young (Rod/Bad Idea Bear)
Custom Puppets have been designed and constructed for this MTKC Pro production by Brad Shaw.
“AVENUE Q has always been one of my favorite shows,” said Danielson. “It’s rare to see a musical this hilarious and accessible to so many different demographics. [Lopez] went on to create THE BOOK OF MORMON and FROZEN, so you know it’s great! I mean, this little show beat WICKED for
the Tony Award!”
AVENUE Q runs March 31st – April 8th. For more information visit mtkc.org.
