Snag Tickets to Affordable, Edgy Productions From The Morrison Center’s MC Presents

As the Morrison Center approaches its 40th anniversary in 2024, it’s a fantastic time to reflect on the vital role its stage has played in the community and its part in the future. The Morrison Center provides a home for the Boise Philharmonic, Ballet Idaho, Opera Idaho, and the Boise State University’s Music and Theatre Arts Departments, solidifying its command of the arts in Idaho.

The Morrison Center has hosted musical and theatrical greats, nationally recognized speakers, comedians, and some of Broadway’s biggest hit shows. This grandstand isn’t just for high-brow performances and those who can afford the arts–the arts should be accessible for all.
