Join A2CT for the Ann Arbor premiere of Avenue Q, the off-beat musical comedy that took Broadway by storm! In this bawdy satire, lovable puppets play out the transition from a childhood pumped full of self-esteem to the real world, where their options are limited and being special isn't enough to guarantee success.
Don't have the cash for a student ticket? Did you know that an Arts At Michigan Passport voucher can get you FREE and DISCOUNTED student tickets to great events like this one? Stop by the Office of New Student Programs (1st Floor LSA Building, open weekdays, 8am-5pm) and pick up a Passport voucher while they last!

Altered Ground examines the landscape, and how the forces of entropy, encroachment, and extraordinary or inconceivable events can alter environments. It also investigates how landscapes memorialize history, whether tragic or joyous, while simultaneously acting as a platform to envision the future. Curated by Lea Bult.
