Mission Statement

Founded in 2001, THE TABARD Theatre Company is the managing and resident theatre company of Theatre on San Pedro Square, with offices in South San Jose. Tabard is committed to making a difference in the community through the arts by presenting professional-quality shows that are suitable and appropriate for audiences of all ages. Tabard actors, stagecrew, and staff of all ages come from throughout the Bay Area as well as San Jose. The company is also committed to making theatre affordable and accessible for all, a goal it meets through its various outreach programs. Additionally, Tabard donates a portion of its concession proceeds to non-profit organizations that are thematically related to the shows and often includes food or clothing drives during its productions. The company produces four to six mainstage productions each season and offers theatre workshops for adults and children.


Producing theatre productions that are suitable and appropriate for audiences of all ages - this does not mean that all shows are targeted to children; it does mean that regardless of one’s age, no one will see or hear anything that would typically be considered offensive in word or deed.

Producing shows that have never been or rarely been produced in the area.

Keeping ticket prices affordable for the average family

Making a difference in the community through the arts, the cast and staff of each production designate a non-profit that is in some way related to the theme of the show to receive a portion of that production’s concession proceeds.

Producing shows that provide theatregoers with an intimate and often interactive theatrical experience, very important in a culture that increasingly becomes passive and impersonal in its entertainment and social engagement.

Providing visually impaired patrons with a hands-on pre-show experience during which actors describe and pass around significant props, costumes, and, when possible, set pieces.

Giving life to the Tabard tag line "Theatre is more than a show" by creating an experience for theatre-goers that begins as soon as possible when they enter the venue.
