Rehearsals for an upcoming show are at full-swing at Texas Wesleyan, whereas the characters are already dressed and ready.

Scheduled to open Thursday, April 25, at least ten characters in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, “Avenue Q,” are puppets.

Theatre Wesleyan shared a first look of the foams and clothes-made puppets on Monday.

The puppets are specifically designed for this production.

Rick Lyon, an original Avenue Q Broadway cast member who first conceived and designed the puppets, taught a private workshop and master class on puppetry performance to the Texas Wesleyan students. Lyon had visited the university in March.

Although the show was inspired by the children favorite “Sesame Street,” the puppets in “Avenue Q” deal with rather adult issues. The show contains language and humor that are geared more towards an older audience.

“Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere,” the theatre department at Texas Wesleyan said in a statement.

What: Avenue Q

Where: Thad Smotherman Theatre at Texas Wesleyan University,1205 Binkley Street, Fort Worth

When: Thursday, April 25 through Sunday, April 28
