A PUPPET show with no strings attached is coming to Wodonga.
Avenue Q is a musical comedy for grown-ups, which leaves political correctness at the door.
Avenue Q director Emma Mancer said the show explored racism, sex and politics in a unique and relevant format.
"It's a lot of fun, it's quite naughty, it's a nice escape for grown-ups to relive their childhoods," she said.
"It was groundbreaking 15 years ago and it's still a very relevant story today."
Avenue Q tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate trying to find his way in the world.
Set in New York City all the way out on Avenue Q, the audience is introduced to Princeton as he struggles to find his purpose: meeting friends, finding love, losing love, and finding it again.
Inspired by the beloved children's show Sesame Street, Avenue Q creates a puppet-filled world that is a little more reflective of the difficult, R-rated realities of life.
OTHER THEATRE ON OUR PATCH:
Avenue Q is the first show from Revolution Theatre Productions, which will produce contemporary theatre productions to raise funds for the charitable gift giving work by Albury Wodonga Community Chest.
Mancer said 13 Border-based actors controlled 10 different puppets in the show.
"I love the connection they have with the puppets," Mancer said.
"Our actors have really grown as puppeteers."
Avenue Q won three Tony Awards in 2004.
