The Arlington Players is a nonprofit, volunteer theater company. Our mission is to produce artistically challenging theater in the grand style, cultivating an environment of artistic excellence and education for artists, audiences and the community of Arlington County, Virginia, by providing opportunities to advance knowledge, skills and participation in the theater arts.
Since 1951, TAP has entertained over a generation with an array of musicals and plays ranging from contemporary comedy to Shakespearean classics and from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Sondheim. TAP also provides an environment for all members of the Arlington community to explore, learn, and become involved in the elements of stagecraft through arts education programs. TAP presents two musicals and one play each season, with performances taking place at the Thomas Jefferson Theatre.
