When you work with clients as great as ours, every day is a reason to celebrate. Here at TicketForce, we are lucky to work with the best of the best. Today we want to take some time to showcase our client, the historic Morris Performing Arts Center.
Located in South Bend, Indiana, the 2,564 seat Morris Performing Arts Center is considered to be a staple of the Midwest. This theatre was built in 1921 as a part of the Orpheum Theatre chain, and was originally named the Palace Theatre until the 1950s. During the early years between 1920 and 1940, the theatre had the pleasure of hosting major acts such as Houdini, The Gene Autry Show, Elvis, Bing Crosby, and even Frank Sinatra.
In May of 1998, the theatre closed and after a $17 million restoration, Morris Performing Arts Center reopened on March 3, 2000. The renovations included a seating and stage expansion, and a revamping of the interior architecture to it’s original state. In 2005, the theatre added its “Crown Jewel,” the custom-made Morris Marquee.
Since its grand reopening, Morris Performing Arts Center audiences have seen the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Trace Adkins, David Copperfield, Harry Connick Jr, Willie Nelson, Robin Williams, Blue Man Group, and many more.
The beloved theatre has received many awards and mentions and is consistently ranked among the Top 100 Theatres Worldwide by Pollstar Magazine, and is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
