Join Our Team of Volunteers! 

Volunteers are an essential part of TAP.  From help putting on shows to keeping our facilities running smoothly, we depend on volunteers to help us accomplish our mission.  The bonus is you can make new friends, have a lot of fun and see some great theatre!

We have volunteer opportunities for many interests and talents! See below for all that we have to offer. Support the arts while being a part of creating the art!

If you would like to become a member of the TAP family of volunteers, please give us a call at (920) 743-1760 or email info@thirdavenueplayworks.org.
