The Palace Theatre Waterbury WAMS presents Appointment with Death

11/03/2017 to 11/06/2017

100 E. Main St, Waterbury, CT Phone: 203-346-2000.

An assorted group of travelers find themselves thrown together on an expedition to the rose red city of Petra. At the center of the group are Mrs. Boynton and her four stepchildren who never leave her side. This apparent devotion however is actually a facade for something far more sinister. Sarah King, a young English doctor, and her colleague, the eminent psychologist, Dr. Theodore Gerard, find themselves embroiled in a battle to free the children from the sadistic grasp of a tyrannical woman. This chilling play offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where Christie explores the realms of the sadistic mind and the devastating effects of long term psychological abuse. The play was adapted by Agatha Christie from her story, Appointment with Death, which was published in 1938.

Warner Theatre Avenue Q

68 Main St, Torrington, CT Phone: 860-489-7180.

Nov. 4,5,10,11,12. A puppet-filled comedy follows a group of twenty-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. 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. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE & SITUATIONS
