2021 is in the rear-view mirror. Looking ahead to 2022!

Greetings and Salutations! 


The 2021 TPAC season has been completed and we hosted many wonderful shows. Hopefully, you are some of the fine folks who joined us this past season. If not, perhaps you will do so in 2022. We are now busy, optimistically searching for shows to add to the 2022 schedule. We want to continue our success at providing quality entertainment while bringing people together in a safe environment. The majority of shows during the past two seasons were outside on the front lawn of the Theater where folks could continue to spread comfortably out while having a picnic, make new friends, see old friends, watch their children play; all while enjoying the outdoors while listening to quality entertainment. This coming season, certain shows will be held inside our beautiful and comfortable theater, should Covid not be rearing it's ugly head.

Lastly, please let us know if you have suggestions for future shows, suggestions for the theater, would like to volunteer, would like to perform or would like to help sponsor a future show. Any or all of these will make for a stronger and healthier TPAC. Feel free to call us at 920-847-2528 or to email us at tpacwashingtonisland@gmail.com

We so look forward to seeing you and hearing from you. Thank you for being a part of our TPAC family!
