One of the first, and the oldest surviving African-American built, owned, and operated vaudeville theatres in the United States, the Morton Theatre opened in 1910 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The fully restored Morton is a rental facility that hosts a wide range of performances and special events. The Morton Theatre hosted early acts such as classical pianist Alice Carter Simmons, Butterbeans and Susie, Blind Willie McTell, Curley Weaver and Roy Dunn, and experienced the dawn of the silver screen as a movie house.
Restored and adapted as a performing arts space, the Morton now caters to local community and touring groups hosting live musical concerts, musicals, dramas, church services, weddings, dance concerts, receptions, poetry readings, award ceremonies, lectures, pageants, and more.
