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 plays 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.
Now in its 60th year, Thibodaux Playhouse owes its longevity within the community to the vision of its charter members and to the dedication and support of countless volunteers and patrons throughout its lifespan. Thibodaux Playhouse continues to work with community members to ensure that the art of theatre will remain an active and vibrant part of the Thibodaux area.
