Tecumseh Center for the arts
The Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) was an anonymous gift to our community in 1981. Originally named Tecumseh Civic Auditorium, The TCA house seats 572 guests, and no matter where you sit, you have a full view of the stage. Of course our "old timers" have their favorite seats, but will also comment there is not a bad seat in the house. Since 1981 the TCA has been host to such greats as Abba Mania, Artie Shaw Orchestra, Barrage, Bowfire, Comedian Ben Bailey, Cab Calloway Orchestra, Capital Steps, Celtic Crossroads, Davy Jones Band, Gary Puckett, Frank C’Ambrisio, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Irish Rovers, John King, Leahy, Le Cirque Esprit, Lightwire Theater, May Erlewine, Mike Super Magician, Mutts Gone Nuts, Owen Campbell, Peter Nero, Reza Illusionist, The Second City, The Fitzgeralds, The Verve Pipe, Tonic Sol-Fa and Many More!
Many local groups and performing arts organizations use the TCA as their primary performing venue and call the TCA "home". These groups include TCA Big Band & VocalAires, Tecumseh Youth Theater, Tecumseh Pops Orchestra & Community Chorus, Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh, Tecumseh Players, The Ballet School, Encore Dance Studio, Dance Steps Studio, Inc., Monroe Street Theater (M.S.T.) Dance Center, Infusion Performing Arts Academy, and Tecumseh Public Schools' Music Department.
Thousands of performers, patrons, and even a few miscellaneous animals have contributed to the success of the TCA over the years. The theater hosts nearly 100 events and welcomes over 25,000 guests each year. The City of Tecumseh is proud to own a performing arts venue that provides the community a place to see world-class touring groups and a place to celebrate the arts.
