I have been a volunteer at Avon Players for the past 11 years. I began volunteering for the Youth Theater Program when my daughters were interested in performing. The Youth program at Avon is a great experience for children of all ages and experience levels.

After my daughters became older, they also participated in Adult cast shows. My primary interest is costumes, but over the years I have learned from other volunteers at Avon to do set dress, help with set construction, usher, help with props and many other jobs. I have made great friends there and love the feeling of a "job well done" when the show opens!

I feel we put on high quality shows for our patrons!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering my time to provide quality community theater to our patron

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite everyone to become members and help support Avon Players and the arts community!

I began volunteering with Avon Players just over a year ago and have been coming out and working with them ever since. The group is fun, inviting, and like a second family. They are able to embrace all skill levels and have made me feel like a vital part of their theatre family. I regularly come out and paint, help with the sets, usher, and have even gotten to help out with some crews.
As a Musical Theatre Major in College, and a theatre lover since childhood I have been around a lot of theatre groups but this group is the one I call home. With volunteer from all age groups I have made many friends that I would have never otherwise had the opportunity to meet. I would suggest to anyone looking for a fun, welcoming theatre group to check out Avon Players
