Third Avenue Playhouse is Door County’s only year-round professional theatre. Founded in 2000, TAP’s mission is to entertain and educate by provoking thought, laughter, and tears. Facilities include the 250-seat mainstage as well as the 84-seat Studio Theatre.
TAP produces riveting performances of contemporary and classic plays, musicals, and even opera, bringing audiences face to face with powerful stories by creating the most intimate theatrical experience possible. The Internship Program provides opportunities for college students seeking experience in all aspects of professional theatre.
TAP’s innovative educational programming provides workshops to students of all ages, based on the theory that by learning theatre skills, students actually learn life skills such as creativity, collaboration, spontaneity, and public speaking. Each year, two full-scale student productions feature young performers from throughout Door County. All educational offerings are led by members of TAP’s professional company.
