Accessibility at the Morrison Center
The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts is committed to making performances, events and services accessible to everyone in our community. We are continually looking for ways in which we may improve our services and therefore welcome your comments. For further information about these services email us at: [email protected]

Wheelchair seating in the Main Hall is available in Row I and (K for extra companion seating) of the Orchestra Level, and Row E and (G for extra companion seating) of the Mezzanine Level. Visit the seating chart for details. Accessible locations are reserved for use by patrons with disabilities, but may be released for general sale when all other locations are sold. If you are planning on transferring to a theatre seat from a wheelchair or mobility device, please inform the ticket office when ordering so we may seat you in an appropriate and safe location. Fire safety codes forbid items such as wheelchairs and mobility devices from being left in any aisle where they may become an obstruction in an emergency. Only entries 1, 11 & 12 completely avoid stair steps on approach from lobby.
Patrons who use crutches may store their crutches behind the seatbacks in front of them by lying the crutches on the floor flush against the seatback. Patrons are asked to ensure the crutches do not extend out into the aisle to avoid creating a tripping hazard for others.

Please call the Special Assistance Line at 208-426-1111 Monday through Friday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm to schedule an interpreter.
