Thank You Avenue Q!

LTA's production of Avenue Q, this past summer, chose to honor a Broadway tradition by dedicating its performances to charity!  Prior to the show's opening, four charitable organizations were chosen for support.  These organizations: Broadway Barks, DC Actors for Animals, King Street Cats, and the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria, are dedicated to educating the public about the humane treatment of animals and the benefits of animal adoption.

During "The Money Song" in Act 2, the cast entered the audience with hats to collect donations to give to these great organizations that work so hard to improve the lives of homeless animals.

Throughout a SOLD OUT run of 20 performances, each to a house of 219 generous audience members, the cast and crew of Avenue Q raised an amazing $6,500!  This money was split equally among the organizations.

Thank you Avenue Q and thank you to our generous audience members!
