Morris Performing Arts Center

The historic Morris Performing Arts Center, which includes the Morris theater and the Palais Royale ballroom, is South Bend's premiere venue for live entertainment. The 2,564 seat theater presents, on the average, 90 performances a year ranging from Broadway to Symphony to rock to comedy - you name it! The Morris has been consistently ranked among the Top 100 Theaters Worldwide by Pollstar Magazine, a highly respected industry journal and is, without a doubt, the "HOTTEST" ticket in town!

The Morris Performing Arts Center, located at 211 North Michigan Street in the heart of downtown South Bend, is not only listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but it is one of the most beloved landmarks in the city. Patrons may have come here to see their first concert or Broadway show; some had their first date here and maybe even had their first kiss in the balcony. We hold a special place in many people’s hearts, and we take that responsibility very seriously.
