An essential component of theater and the arts in general has always been adaptability. Tecumseh Center for the Arts is committed to the safety of our patrons while promoting creativity in our county. Until the building is able to open safely and accommodate guests, we will continue to make renovations, make plans for future programs, develop and expand upon art displays.

In order to stay flexible, the theater will now be planning events further than one month in advance. Please visit www.TheTCA.org for updates!
