This was my first and only visit (so far). I saw "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol" and although I can certainly appreciate the level of talent that it takes for one person to do an entire theatrical performance on his own (with virtually NO props or costumes, etc.). Still, it wasn't my "thing." I literally fell asleep a couple of times.... More

First of all, thank you for visiting the Playhouse and I hope you will return another time. We produce an eclectic selection of plays throughout the year (our season runs from March through December). Inevitably not every play will please everyone, nor should it. We attempt to cater to a wide of variety of tastes in order to represent the... More

We took in Madame Sherry and were thoroughly entertained. Definitely would recommend. Highly impressed with the level of talent. It was a Thursday night and the place was only half full, so we could have been last minute.

A hidden gem is the TAP! Don't let its' small stature fool you, as it is BIG on entertainment. I have attended several performances over the past few years on my travels to Sturgeon Bay and they have never failed to disappoint. From the warm welcome in the lobby to the high spirited performances, this is a MUST. This past... More

Having been to Sturgeon Bay many, many times, we never paid attention to the Third Avenue Playhouse. A mistake! We just saw "Gin Game" at this darling, pristine theatre. Not only was "Gin Game" wonderful...funny and heart wrenching...but the theatre itself was just a joy. Comfortable seats, restrooms, and lovely snacks and drinks are available in the lobby. The actors... More

I recently attended The 39 Steps at TAP, and was amazed at how four really talented actors could play so many different parts. And this performance was so well done and chock full of laughs. So glad I attended. Ticket prices are very reasonable and parking is good and free. And since it is in downtown Sturgeon Bay, good dining... More

We were in Door County celebrating birthdays and took in the new production "Gin Game" at the Third Avenue Playhouse. Well done play with serious and funny mixed together. Small theater with all good seats and very reasonable tickets ... only $27 per person. If you have plans to go to Door County to check out the fall colors, be... More

This local community theatre playhouse has some fantastic talent! We saw Madam Sherry last night, and it was so fun! Every cast member had a good voice, some had great voices; important when much of the dialogue is sung! The theatre was almost full...a lot of the patrons seemed to know each other, so I assume it draws a lot... More

Thank you for coming to see Madam Sherry at TAP. I'm glad you had a good time and hope you will come again. I wanted to correct your mention of TAP as a "community theatre".

Just enjoyed our first performance at TAP. I had never heard of this show and wasnt sure what to expect from a small town theater. What a treat! The story was cute, the music was old school fun and the voices were incredible! The set design was clever, the choreography flowed perfectly, and the theater itself was a space that... More

The play itself was witty and unique. There were 3 actors and 1 actress, and they all were equally believable and very entertaining. The theatre is small and it feels very intimate, like you are in the show with the actors. Overall just a top notch experience.
