"We just launched a new donation page on the TCA website that allows you to donate to Tecumseh Center for the Arts as well as our partner organizations. We hope you'll consider making a donation to one or even several of these organizations at the end of this year!"
Happy Holidays to our loyal patrons.
The last month of 2017 is here and what a whirlwind of a year its been! Tecumseh Center for the Arts has made astounding steps forward in the past year. We upgraded the WIFI and Data Ports throughout the theater, replaced the original roofs over the lobby and auditorium, made improvements to the marquee, launched a new cloud-based ticketing software, and added more shows and renters.
I must honestly say that sometimes I have to stop and think about all that has been accomplished over the last 12 months. When I take a moment to reflect on the positive changes, I know it wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated patrons, donors, local foundations, and business sponsors. The outpouring of support from the community is humbling. On behalf of the entire TCA staff, thank you for your support.
So far this season, we celebrated an increase in season ticket sales --- surpassing last year’s record. Excitedly hosted the WTCA Radio Show’s presentation of Fright Night at the TCA with Tecumseh Players, TCA Big Band & VocalAires and Tecumseh Youth Theatre just in time for Halloween. We also had a very successful 11th production of the Nutcracker Ballet in December.
With all the exciting things going on, we must also stop and think about items that still need to be renovated. We recently had to repair part of the HVAC system as well as temporary repairs to the parking lot. In addition, we‘re experiencing some boiler issues that will need to be fixed soon.
To help us with these projects, I encourage you to purchase tickets to our shows, rent our marquee, purchase a nameplate on one of our auditorium seats or consider making an end-of-year donation to the theater, which is tax-deductible.
I am proud to be part of the TCA family that embraces the proud history of the theater while eagerly looking to the future to keep the theater thriving for many years to come.
Wishing you all a healthy and happy holiday season!
