The musical, "Avenue Q ," is known for it's vulgar song and characters. So why is it being performed at a high school?

Butler High School's version of the story still has the same theme, the same humor, but only some of the crudeness.

One of the main characters, Trekkie, as an addiction to pornography in the Broadway version.

But for high school, he is addicted to social media. The other inappropriate songs have been removed from the musical to target a younger, PG-13 audience.

They didn't toss away all of the hot topics, though.

    Do you remember that Spanish class in high school...Or maybe that French course in college? Now just imagine going to a foreign country and taking all your classes in that language. Total emersion can be overwhelming. That's a reality many kids in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are facing every day.
