Our Mission

The Tabard Theatre Company is committed to making a difference in the community through the arts by providing professional-quality theatre experiences such as productions and workshops that are appropriate and affordable for audiences of all ages. Tabard focuses on new works or works not commonly produced. Especially engaged with altruism and philanthropy, 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.
