In 2021, the committee decided that the long-held Avalon waiting list was not fit for purpose – it was too long and some families had moved on since they put their kids on it. Others will still desperate to be part of Avalon! We had many long discussions about this, but we decided that the fairest thing to do was to hold a taster session workshop around Easter, in which children could see if musical theatre suited their interests.

Avalon is a popular community theatre group and because of this many children want to join. Avalon will no longer have a waiting list for children to join our group. We will be holding yearly ‘taster session’ workshops in the spring for children aged 7-16, which will be first come, first serve for places.

A link to the application form will be posted on this website and on the Avalon Youth Theatre Facebook page.

After attending a workshop there will be an opportunity to apply for a place at Avalon for the next show.

– Please note – Attending a workshop does not guarantee your child a place in Avalon.

Anybody on the existing waiting list will be contacted and given an opportunity to attend one of the 2022 workshops.
