Wonderful place to see a show! Took my daughter to see Mannheim Steamroller and we both had a blast! We were on the main floor and there was not a bad seat in the house! Will definitely return.

Beautiful place to watch shows ect... The Price is Right Live was a blast Watching almost every contestant win very nice prizes. Show case needs work... Many felt it was unfair. The contestants were random!!! (I was picked to come on down to my surprise) yes they try to give every one a chance, you get one bid don't win... More

Went to the Moody Blues concert earlier this week. Waited for the concert venue to open in a small park across the street from the entrance. Never been here before, not that hard to find. Beautiful place, great seats and a wonderful vibe from nice, friendly staffers. Looked to me like almost all the seats had great sight lines. Only... More

This is the finest, best organized showplace I've been in Northern Indiana. Have attended many shows, (including 5 Celtic Woman) and I highly recommend it. The acoustics are great and the staff on board are terrific. Parking is relatively easy. Loved every moment. Keep up the good work!

I've lived in Southwest Michigan my whole (roughly 30 years) and only recently went to the Morris for the first time this month to see a concert. I had such a great experience I bought tickets to see Wicked two weeks later! There is really no bad seat in the whole place and the tickets for both shows were reasonable... More

More civic is definitely the place to visit. They have very shows going all the time: kid shows, music,plays,musicals, comedies and more. It has recently been renovated and is absolutely gorgeous. There are seats on the main floor,mezzanine,first,second,and third balcony. My favorite seats anywhere the mezzanine. Because I'm short and I can always see. Very acoustically well designed in addition... More

Thank you for review of the Morris Performing Arts Center. The lottery for $25 tickets was a special that WICKED does for that show. Front entrance lobby doors open one hour prior to show time. The inside doors into the theater seating open 30 minutes prior to show time. More

Our first trip to this theater was enjoyable. It's a lovely classic, but what gets it a rating of five is its staff. Friendly and helpful, even to the point of going outside to address traffic issues so the audience was sure to get seated on time. Thanks!
