About
Third Avenue PlayWorks inspires community connections and sparks dialogue through wide-ranging professional theatre. We envision a Wisconsin where everyone, regardless of background, social, and economic status, has access to cutting-edge theatre. We see a future where TAP is a center for cultural production and community connection, where everyone, no matter their background (cultural, ethnic, socio-economic status, gender expression, etc.), is welcome and affirmed. We hold fast to the “Wisconsin Idea” and will not rest until we have a meaningful impact on everyone in our state. TAP strives to be recognized among the leading arts organizations in the Upper Midwest. We are a home for Wisconsin artists, audiences, and for everyone who visits us. Welcome!

Third Avenue Playworks-TAP
High integrity, high quality theatre in an unlikely location
Sturgeon Bay WI
Make it a weekend from Milwaukee or Chicago and catch a play.
Seats are comfortable, staging and performance are first class
Support the live arts and you won't be disappointed.

We have thoroughly enjoyed two shows at TAP, one with friends and one with elderly parents for the holidays. A clean and comfortable theater. Love the option to have snacks and beverages in the theater plus the cozy atmosphere. The shows are extremely well done with exceptional talent! We are already planning our 2024 visits and have recommended to many friends and family.

Excellent theater in Door County, better than anything in Chicago and L.A. What the actors could not have known on opening night for The Mystery of Irma Vep was that my son, who is nominated for his third Emmy was there with us for a birthday trip, and his first time to Door County. We looked at the other theater options and were meh about them. While walking in Sturgeon Bay we saw TAP theater and looked at the opportunity to try something new and fun, and WOW we were there on opening night front row and everyone in our family (including Mr. Emmy Nomination) was SO IMPRESSED!!! Literally, my son said I have not seen acting and set design and crew coordination this good for theater in L.A., and that says a lot, as he is a frequent theatergoer and fan of the arts. The improv between these two actors was beyond excellent, we laughed so hard and had such a wonderful time!!! If you are in Door County now GET YOUR TICKETS to see this show, it truly is a gift and entertainment beyond your expectations. If you want a fun truly amazing theater experience INDOORS (thank you I will be happy with the walls to keep out the weather lol) go see anything TAPS is putting on. We got a taste of what they do, and we found it to be the absolute highlight of our trip!!!

TAP started as a quirky little theatre group that worked out of, well let's face it- the old storage area in the back of an old movie theatre. The facility was primitive but the productions were always first rate. They have now managed to move into a brand new intimate theatre on the foot print of the original theatre. Intimate setting, brand new theatre, and with expectations that 1st rate productions will continue!

We saw the play, The Book Club Play last week and it was wonderful. The characters were so real, the story so believable and overall, it was well done. Third Avenue PlayWorks is a very nice venue. We will get tickets again soon.

Three of us had the tremendous pleasure of attending the TAP production of "Slow Soup" this past May. It was hilarious! The play was professional, funny, entertaining, and better than most community theatre we have attended over the years. We had excellent seats (front row center) and found the process of obtaining said seats seamless. I cannot wait to return to Sturgeon Bay and attend another TAP show!

As new residents of Door County, we are trying to experience things that we did not have a chance to do over decades of summer vacations here.
We have always enjoyed the theater and decided to subscribe to TAP this season.
The first play, Slow Food, featured a favorite actor but that really wouldn't have mattered. The small cast was outstanding, the play well written with superb timing and the direction crisp.
The theater itself is guide a gem. Small, intimate, comfortable and inviting.
We cannot wait to see the rest of the season.

Saw a musical production in the TAP's Studio Theatre, an intimate setting with limited seating. Located in downtown Sturgeon Bay, the TAP is within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and drinking establishments. This little theatre produces some exceptional work.

We saw Gershwin's La La Lucille and it was excellent. 100 seat theatre is comfortable and intimate; actors were entertaining and obviously enjoying themselves. Overall great experience. We're booking tickets for their Christmas show!
