A puppet from the Tony Award®-winning musical comedy Avenue Q.
First performed in March 2003, the show featured both human and puppet characters in a hilarious parody of Sesame Street. The puppets were either rod-controlled or performed with 'live-hands', a technique requiring a pair of puppeteers. These puppets were made and used in the Australian production in 2015 by Promotechnics, closely following the original character designs created by talented puppet master and creator of the original Broadway show, Rick Lyon.
This puppet was used for the scene in which Kate and Princeton visit the "Around the Clock Cafe" on a date, which goes awry amid a performance by Lucy the Slut, some absinthe daiquiris and questionable advice from the Bad Idea Bears. This is the yellow bear and has a hair bow and lace skirt, and does not feature any controlling rods.
The puppet is constructed from upholstery foam, plastic and cardboard, covered in Antron fleece. It remains in excellent condition with its original storage bag.
Materials: Foam, Synthetic Materials, Base Metal, Plastic, Card.
