Expanding the Arts. Enhancing the Experience.
Thibodaux Playhouse, Inc. (TPI) was founded in 1960 as a non-profit community theatre dedicated to producing quality entertainment for the citizens of Thibodaux, Louisiana, and the surrounding areas.
Over its 60-year history, Thibodaux Playhouse has produced hundreds of shows and performed at various venues. This all changed in 1992 when the Playhouse found their home in what is known today as Jean Lafitte National Historical Park & Preserve, a branch of the United States National Park Service. More than twenty years later, and Thibodaux Playhouse is still the primary resident of Jean Lafitte’s Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center Theatre. The bulk of the planning and rehearsals, however, take place off site at Thibodaux Playhouse, Inc.’s Headquarters located at 902 Jackson St. (The Studio) in Thibodaux.
Thibodaux Playhouse produces four to five mainstage productions in their season, which extends from September to August. Additionally, the Playhouse hosts various workshops, productions, and classes through its outreach programs TPI Junior, TPI Teen, and TPI Field Trip.
