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...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...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.

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....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...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". The Third Avenue Playhouse is a year-round professional theatre company...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...More

We have an 84 seat house - seven rows, 12 across each row. The width of the rows approximate the width of the stage. Honestly there's not a bad seat in the house. However some people prefer sitting up close in the first... More
