Founded in 1960 as a non-profit community theatre, Thibodaux Playhouse is dedicated to the planning, promotion, and production of plays for the citizens of Thibodaux and surrounding areas. Over its 60-year history, Thibodaux Playhouse has produced over 280 shows and performed at various local venues including Nicholls State University and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park & Preserve Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center Theatre. On July 11, 2013, Mayor Tommy Eschete proclaimed Thibodaux Playhouse, Inc. Thibodaux’s official community theatre.
Managed by an elected Board of Directors and supported through the dedication of its volunteers, Thibodaux Playhouse produces three straight plays and one musical per season. The Playhouse additionally hosts two children’s musical workshop productions through its outreach program, TPI, Jr., and unveiled its newest outreach effort, an annual field trip production for tri-parish area students, in February, 2017.
The Thibodaux Playhouse Season extends from September-August. Season brochures are distributed to patrons and mailed to season ticket holders during the initial phase of our annual membership drive. Brochures can also be obtained by calling Thibodaux Playhouse (985) 446-1896 or by visiting our ticket booth located in the lobby of the Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center Theatre, 314 St. Mary Street in Thibodaux.
