BREAUX BRIDGE — The Teche Center for the Arts building will be undergoing renovations for the next several months.

In 2018, TCA’s Board of Trustees purchased the building, a historic 1940s movie theater, which is located in downtown Breaux Bridge. TCA is currently house in that location.

According to TCA, interior remodeling will take place during the remaining months of 2019. The work is being done through generous donors and community supporters. The action plan to upgrade the facility with accessible bathrooms is in the works, with construction beginning in the last two quarters of this year.

TCA says the work will help with the center's programming which includes summer camps, Louisiana French educational courses, traditional Louisiana music performances, fais do-dos, and all forms of arts events. It will also expand the community's options for wedding receptions, parties, and other rental functions.

During the construction phase, St. Bernard School, Buck and Johnny’s Glass Room, Beau and Lisa McDaniel’s Antiquity, and Cafe Sydnie Mae will host TCA events.

The group says that there is still a need for funding of the project. TCA asks that those interested in opportunities of naming rights and legacy investments contact their offices at info@techecenterforthearts.com or call (337)-366-0629.
