Mission Statement

TAP's mission statement is simple: to motivate and train local volunteers in the theatrical arts and to present the best possible production of a wide variety of enjoyable shows.

Although a number of our stage volunteers have professional experience, each one is an amateur - a lover of the stage!

Washingtonian Magazine has described TAP as “the best theatre on the Eastern Shore.” The Easton Star Democrat has noted the “consistent high quality” of TAP’s productions.
