Our Mission

Tabard’s mission is to provide enlightening theatre experiences which are appropriate and affordable
for audiences of all ages. We champion new works, innovative interpretations and unique plays rarely
produced. Tabard is an inclusive environment where the community can participate in every area of the
plays, musicals, educational programs and music concerts we produce. With a focus on altruism, Tabard
reaches out to the under-served, such as the blind/visually impaired and children in low-income areas,
and donates a portion of each production's concession proceeds to a designated local charity.
