Architect A. Hayes Town designed the first municipal auditorium in Lafayette in 1957, envisioned by Mayor Jerome Domengeaux and Herbert Heymann. Bringing economic, cultural and educational benefits to the hub city, this auditorium would serve the people of Acadiana, an eight-parish region in South Louisiana and the heart of Cajun Country. Construction on the auditorium was completed in 1960.

Over 40 years later and numerous renovations, the rededicated Heymann Center for the Performing Arts continues to benefit the city and those who enjoy its attractions. Located adjacent to Lafayette's Oil Center, the auditorium boasts bi-monthly performances by the Acadiana Symphony, a Broadway series and dozens of other community functions throughout the year. Its 2,230 seating capacity and state-of-the-art acoustical arrangement make it one of the most intimate venues in Acadiana. Come share in the timeless charm of Lafayette, and the classic style of the Heymann Center for the Performing Arts.
