Thank you to our many patrons, groups and partner organizations who help make TCA a success!
"I was so pleased that the kids picked the Tecumseh Center of the Arts as their wedding ceremony venue.The TCA is just a lovely facility, we were allowed to be creative, there was plenty of seating, and we didn’t have to worry about the weather. The staff was invaluable! They were helpful, supportive, and went above my expectations. And above all, the ceremony was breathtaking! Thank you, TCA!"
~ Rebecca Borton, Mother of the bride
"A little birdie told us you were a big help assuring one of our residents could get to the show by helping with her walker! Thanks for all you do for our community - including the little things that are BIG things for others!"
~ Jim and Ginny Ingle, Tecumseh Place
"The Tecumseh Center for the Arts is one of Tecumseh’s precious “gems!” Our community has been blessed with a wonderful venue to host professional and local talent at affordable prices. For 35 years, we have had the opportunity to see our local pro - Tim Ries, Davy Jones, Rita Coolidge, Toledo Symphony, Irish Rovers, just to name a few. And locally, it has been a home for our Tecumseh Players, Dance Studios, Tecumseh Youth Theatre, Kiwanis Travel Series, Tecumseh Pops Orchestra & Community Chorus, our schools, and more. What a wonderful learning experience for our youth to have the privilege of watching a stage performance and attend a concert. They have even been given the chance of performing, singing, dancing, playing instruments on stage. Interested students have also learned to work back stage and train as techies. Because of these many advantages, this precious “Gem” has guided many of our students into careers involving the Arts! Tecumseh Pops began 35 years ago along with the opening of the TCA. Being a charter member of Pops & just knowing we were going to have the perfect home, has certainly been a part of the Pops’ success. Being an educator & supporter of the Arts, I feel the TCA is Tecumseh’s crown jewel and must be supported and treasured!"

"On behalf of Communities in Schools of the Tecumseh Area, I sincerely thank you for your donation of (2) tickets to either The Verve Pipe or Humming House performance. Your contribution to the March Mingle is greatly appreciated! The event was a huge success raising over $42,000 thanks to the generosity of our very giving community.
Your support will help us fulfill our mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Together with the help of the community, CISTA Site Coordinators and Graduation Coach provide Integrated Student Supports (ISS) to address the underlying reasons why students leave school without a diploma. Support services focus on whole-school, group and individual interventions. Service categories include (but are not limited to); basic needs, behavior interventions, youth empowerment, family engagement, building assets and life skills, academic assistance, community service, financial stability, substance abuse prevention and post-secondary/career exploration opportunities.
Everyone benefits when a community is supportive of their youth! Thank you again for all you do for CISTA and Tecumseh Students!"
~ Heather Perez, Executive Director Communities in Schools - Tecumseh Area
"I would be remiss if I didn't thank you two (Karen Bunch and Kathy Field) and the rest of your staff for all you do for us as an organization. We are so grateful for the facility and the services that it supplies ... We look forward to our continued working relationship as we plan for the Fall season."
~ Helene Bleecker, Tecumseh Pops and Community Chorus Chair
"Thank you for the fun job experience. I really enjoyed the tour, but my favorite part was trying on costumes. I would like to have a career that involves acting, so this day very informative. Thank you for your participation in the Payback For Education Program. Also, thank you for taking the time to show us around. I appreciated the opportunity to work the lights and seeing the sound board. Thanks for teaching me about how ticets and sales are processed. I thought the warehouse and prop room was really coll too!"
