So the Avenue Q residents have moved out to pastures new.
New friendships have been formed but as with every show at The Mill.. it is only for NOW.
Next stop Wait Until Dark with auditions on Tuesday.
So see you around Princeton (oh and everyone else).

So the Mill audience are a truly generous bunch. On Saturday night we raised £37.42, in the Avenue Q Money song, making a grand total for the week of £94.06.
All the money is being sent to the @PoppyLegion
Thank you #yougaveusyourmoney


So tonight the current residents of Avenue Q will move out.
They are staying for one more night, to a packed audience, so if Princeton doesn't find his purpose, we are not too sure what will happen!
#purose #finalnight #takeabow #fullhouse #timetosaygoodbyetothepuppets

Wow just wow, Friday night audience you rock. We raised £32.41 in the Avenue Q Money Song, best yet, so Saturday night, no pressure #loadsofmoney #generous #giveusmoremoney

It's 3 down and 2 to go and we have a sell out folks.
#AvenueQ will be performing to packed houses and the Bad Idea Bears think it's a really good idea to buy plenty of beer from the bar! #letsgetlargies #drinkingames #beer #FridayFeeling
