Puppets aren’t always just for kids.

That is certainly the sentiment of the musical “Avenue Q,” which the Highland Park Players are set to perform at the Northbrook Theatre Oct. 16-25.

“Avenue Q” tells the story of a recent college graduate, Princeton, trying to find his way in New York City. He lives on Avenue Q because he can’t afford anything better, and struggles with meeting friends, finding and losing love.

There is one catch, though: a majority of the cast is played by puppets.
