The Arts

The arts thrive in Terrebonne Parish. The new $15 million 100,000 square foot Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center is a state-of-the-art facility that seats 5,000 and provides a venue to accommodate the events that attract larger audiences, such as rock concerts and Broadway shows like Annie, Cats and Grease. For more information, contact the Civic Center at 800-354-6862.

Our local theater group, Le Petit Theatre de Terrebonne, produces five plays a year and is supported by a roster of 900 members. We love our theater here and are proud of the consistent outstanding quality of performances. The historic building that houses Le Petit Theatre de Terrebonne was originally built as Peoples Bank. In 1933, the building was converted to Houma City Hall.

The Terrebonne Fine Arts Guild operates the Downtown Art Gallery, housed in its new building on Belanger Street. The gallery is an excellent way to view artists’ works from throughout the region. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
