Over forty years ago, Dennis Soens, Bonnie Matt and Ginny Lynch asked the then mayor of Avalon if they could use Community Hall to put on a show. The mayor approved and the dramatic ensemble “Avalon Players” was born, taking the stage in its first production, A Taste of Broadway.

The following summer a flyer was circulated announcing auditions, and to everyone’s surprise, hundreds of children appeared! No one was turned away each child was given a part in the show. This tradition continues today.

The Players took a break for a few years and returned in 1985. With the help and dedication of Suzanne Sennhenn, the Players experienced a new beginning and have presented musical productions for audiences every summer since. This summer marks our thirty second consecutive show.
