“Avenue Q” is a fun play and has an important message in it and a message you can take and use even after school,” said Ms. Truslow. Marina Johnson, a senior who plays Christmas eve, said “There are some bad words and well there is a character who kinda sleeps around.” “Ms. Truslow and Mr. Ryman said they’ve been watching it for a few years and they’ve always wanted to do it, so I guess they finally decide they wanted to do it this year,” said Johnson.
