Friday, June 15, American English — Relive the days of the Beatles! Using identical instruments the legendary group used, this Palatine favorite has an uncanny ability to reproduce the vocal style and harmonies of the Beatles. Not only will they bring back memories for those who were there, but they bring to life the sounds for those who never had achance to hear it live.
What would happen if the characters from the PBS show Sesame Street grew up and went a little wild? That’s the premise behind Avenue Q, a Tony Award-winning musical coming to Palatine's Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center.
From June 2 to 17, Music on Stage will present the Chicagoland premiere of Avenue Q, a comedy intended for adult audiences that features the use of puppets by the actors. The musical tells the story of Princeton, a recent college graduate who moves to New York and meets several colorful characters along the way. (Read Patch's feature story on the production.)
Tickets are on sale through the Cutting Hall Box Office, 150 E. Wood Street in Palatine: 847-202-5222, or online by visiting musiconstage.org. Advance ticket sales are $20 for reserved seating, while ‘Silver Citizens' (age 62 & over) are $17.
