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 each patron has their favorite seat, but will also comment that there is not a bad seat in the house.
Over the past 40 years the TCA has been host to such greats as the Artie Shaw Orchestra, Peter Nero, The Amazing Kreskin, The Toledo Symphony, Chinese Golden Acrobats, The National Theatre of the Deaf, The National Shakespeare Company, Feld Ballet NY, Count Basie, Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Chenille Sisters, Lightwire Theater, and Comedian Godfrey. Additionally, the TCA has posted National touring companies of Driving Miss Daisy, A Christmas Carol, 1940's Radio Hour, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Nunsense, Steel Magnolias, and many more.
Thousands of performers, patrons, and even a few miscellaneous animals have contributed to the success of the TCA over the years. A big thank you from the staff of the TCA to all those past, present, and future participants.
