All of the joy of Sesame Street and The Muppets will blend with adult humour in a musical coming to Cambridge Arts Theatre starting on Monday.

The laugh-out-loud mischievous musical Avenue Q returns to Cambridge after five years in the West End with performances running until Saturday September 5.

The smash hit will be bringing with it hysterically funny songs and a whole host of fuzzy friends.

Performed by an ensemble cast of actors and puppets, Avenue Q is an award-winning musical about growing up, dreaming big and discovering your purpose in life.

The story starts with Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account.

Soon discovering that the only neighbourhood in his price range is Avenue Q, he finds himself moving in with some truly quirky characters.

There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.

The award-winning musical Avenue Q was created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, the co-creator of Book of Mormon and song writer for Disney’s Frozen.

First opening Off-Broadway in 2013, Avenue Q then transferred to Broadway.

It then won three Tony Awards for the Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.

It has appeared in more than 10 countries over the world.

Performances are at 7.45pm Monday to Thursday with two performances on Friday and Saturday.

Tickets for the show cost between £15 and £35.
