Welcome to Tred Avon Players, Inc.

Theatre is Alive and Well on The Eastern Shore.

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.

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!
