October 2 - 30

John and his daughter Caitlyn are birders. As they scan the skies over their backyard in suburban Maryland looking for elusive birds, years go by. Relationships begin and end. Children grow up and parents age. The climate and the world change in small and vast ways. BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA takes a close look at the relationship of a father and daughter over the course of a decade as they struggle to understand the parts of one another that defy understanding.

December 11 - 31

Welcome To Third Avenue PlayWorks

TAP is Door County’s premier year-round professional theatre, producing performances of comedies, dramas, and musicals in the newly-renovated Kane Theatre. Located in historic downtown Sturgeon Bay, this beautiful space brings audiences face-to-face with powerful stories by creating the most intimate theatrical experience possible. With its ever-growing reputation and its long-standing presence in the community, TAP is an integral part of Door County’s vibrant arts scene.

Third Avenue PlayWorks recognizes that we gather on the ancestral lands of the Potawatomi Nation and other peoples/nations, including the Huron, Menominee, Ojibwe, Ottawa, Petun, Sauk and Ho-Chunk. We acknowledge that the history of settler colonialism has shaped this place and its peoples, past and present, and in offering this acknowledgement seek to support and strengthen Indigenous sovereignty.
