Teche Center for the Arts
The Teche Center for the Arts aims to serve as the principal cultural, arts, music, education, and historical center for the residents and tourists of Saint Martin Parish and beyond. TCA presents music, art, theater, literary arts, and showcases the rich Cajun and Creole cultures of Acadiana. A focus is teaching children the arts and the French Cajun and Creole language of the region. TCA began to offer programs about two years ago in historic downtown Breaux Bridge in a former movie theater variously known as the Dan, Jeff, and Murphy "The Murph" Theater. It's home to the new Pont Breaux Players community theatre group and an array of summer camps, including Robotics, Cajun and Creole cooking, French lessons using songs and games, theatrical makeup, knitting, and theatre arts. The new Audrey Williams Pearce Louisiana Reading Room offers a comfortable space to enjoy an eclectic collection of books about Louisiana, as well as books written by regional authors, poets, and artists.
