Important Parking Information: Venues & Performances

Important Parking Information: Venues & Performances 

As you may be aware, the Arlington County Board recently approved the School Board’s request to build a new elementary school on the parking lot of the Thomas Jefferson Theater – TAP’s home stage.  The final construction promises to significantly improve parking withan underground garage and redesigned theater entrance.
 
As part of the planned construction, Arlington County informed us there will be significant disruption to the Thomas Jefferson Theater’s parking for an estimated two years, beginning summer 2017.  In short, the entire front lot where TAP patrons frequently park will be out of commission during construction, while the theater itself will be untouched and fully operational.
 
Despite the construction, TAP will perform Pippin and Sweeney Todd at the Thomas Jefferson Theater as planned, and will make a grand return to the Gunston Middle School Theater One for A Streetcar Named Desire (many of you may remember when TAP performed its winter play at Gunston every year!)
 
TAP is working closely with the County Board and the Arlington Arts Commission, seeking County assistance to minimize the disruption to you and TAP’s other patrons.  Specifically, the County granted our request to use the nearby Arlington County Career Center parking lot (816 South Walter Reed Drive) to base a TAP-run shuttle service.  We are also seeking County approval for limited Thomas Jefferson onsite parking for those with mobility challenges.  Additionally, we are working with Uber and other taxi services to facilitate easier access for TAP patrons.  We will provide you with detailed parking and transportation suggestions and information prior to each production.

 
We recognize the parking situation will be an inconvenience to many of our patrons.  We are grateful for your patience and understanding, and for staying with us as we weather the County’s construction project together.  We can promise you the same high quality productions, with show stopping musical numbers and breathtaking moments that you have come to expect from The Arlington Players.
