Every year community groups, churches, bus tours, school groups and more make Timber Lake Playhouse part of their spring and summer experiences. We have several exciting opportunities to make your experience unique and ensure that you and your group have a wonderful time at TLP. Our administrative team is ready to help you with tickets and any additional arrangements (like meal options, backstage tours or additional activities in the region) for a memorable theatre event that suits your group’s needs. Now you can include TLP Cash with each ticket purchase that individual members of your group can redeem for whatever they want while at TLP. Whether used as a meal voucher at the Deck, for concession stand, bar or gift shop purchases, TLP Cash is a flexible and convenient.
