Cast of LAVC Theater Art's Production of Avenue Q Raised Money for the Children's Burn Foundation and Meets Show's Co-Writer/Lyricist
The LAVC Theater Arts Department had a successful two-week run of its production of the Tony-award winning musical Avenue Q; the show raised $1,027.57 for the Children's Burn Foundation and the cast met the musical's co-writer/lyricist Jeff Marx. Prior to each of the show's four performances, audience members were asked to give their spare change during the show's "The Money Song", and the money raised would benefit the Children's Burn Foundation. The cast decided to donate the money to the organization since one of the college's theater arts students, Marena Rosado, and the daughter of LAVC faculty member Cathy Pyles, Alexi, are both burn survivors. The Burn Foundation assists children from age 0-18 in burn recovery and teaches fire prevention; it also loaned the cast its "teaching tolerance" puppets for the show's auditions and rehearsal period. In addition, Jeff Marx, one of the co-writer/lyricist for "Avenue Q", attended the show's closing night performance, and he brought his Tony Award to show the cast. Congratulations to the cast of Avenue Q!
