The Tred Avon Players, Inc. (TAP) is a non-profit Maryland corporation, organized in 1982 to present plays and musicals in the Oxford Community Center (OCC), an abandoned school building which was saved from the wrecking ball by a group of public spirited citizens. Since the first sold-out melodramas in August of 1982, TAP has grown in community stature and artistic merit to present four (sometimes five) plays and musicals each year for ever-growing numbers of residents on and visitors to the most livable town on the Eastern Shore.

“The Cemetery Club” is a touching comedy-drama is about three widows who live in the same Jewish community in Pittsburgh. Once a week, they gather to visit their husbands' graves and meet at a deli afterward to talk about their lives.

Performances of “The Cemetery Club” are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 16 to 25, at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays, Feb. 19 and 26 at 2 p.m. at the Oxford Community Center.
The Tred Avon Players are funded by an operating grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive, and from the Talbot County Arts Council.
