On March 21st, Staples Players put on a stunning performance of “Avenue Q,” a play about the struggles that a group of people, and monsters, face as they enter adulthood and the challenges that adulthood throws at them, such as finding a job. Unlike most productions Staples Players put on, “Avenue Q” used puppets throughout the performance, an integral part of “Avenue Q.” Performances were held at the Staples High School auditorium on Sat., March 22nd at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sun., March 23rd at 3:00 p.m.
