 The story revolves around the escalating problems of a middle-aged couple living on Second Avenue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City. Mel Edison, the main character, has just lost his job after many years and now has to cope with being unemployed at middle age. The action occurs during an intense summer heat wave and a prolonged garbage strike, which just exacerbates Edison’s plight to no end as he and his wife Edna deal with noisy neighbors, loud sounds emanating from the Manhattan streets up to their apartment and even a robbery of their apartment during broad daylight. Mel eventually suffers a nervous breakdown from the whole affair, and it is up to the loving care of his brother Harry, his sisters and Edna to bring Mel back to a firm reality.

Written by Frank O’Donnell
Co-Directed by Frank O’Donnell, Kayla O’Donnell and Mark Anderson

You remember Ant’ny Claus — Santa’s not-so-little, little brother who’s on call in case Santa can’t do his job. In other words, he’s the Santa Back-Up Plan. In the latest installment of the Ant’ny Claus series, Ant’ny and the gang are called north. Way north. To the North Pole.

Santa slipped on some ice and broke his hip. While he’s whisked off for surgery, Ant’ny has to step in once again for his big brother. With just two weeks to go until Christmas, things are hectic at the North Pole, and Ant’ny is forced to deal with the issues, not the least of which is an impendingwork stoppage by the Elves Union.

The old gang — Ant’ny, Bruno Benny Blue Balls, Sonny and Holly — meet up with the new gang — including Persnickety the Elf, Elfie on a Shelfie, Notfanuttin’ The Reindeer and more — at the Pole, and there’s friction. Just when the holiday seems doomed, Carmella Senior — Ant’ny’s mother-in-law — swoops in to save the day. But is she too late?

Avenue Q: The Musical

Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez & Jeff Marks
Book by Jeff Whitty
Based on an Original Concept by Robert Lopez & Jess Marx

Directed by Paul Adam

Humans and puppets interact in this tale of twenty-somethings learning how to live and love in New York City. Think “Sesame Street” with adult themes, humor, and song.

Avenue Q is about real life. It’s about finding a job, losing a job, learning about racism, getting an apartment, getting kicked out of your apartment, being different, falling in love, promiscuity, avoiding commitment, hang-overs, Internet porn and discovering the world.

(Rated PG-13 for ADULT LANGUAGE & CONTENT)
