Setting the Stage!

On the corner of Washington Street and Hull Street stands a piece of Athens history which has provided an extraordinary venue for patrons since 1910. The Morton Theatre boasts state-of-the-art lighting and audio systems framed in the simple elegance of a brilliant bluesy d├ęcor.  The antiqued seating is reminiscent of a bygone era in Athens' rich history.

The Morton Theatre is a popular choice for the performing arts thanks to its charmingly classic ambiance and storied past.

When you perform at the Morton, time seems to reverse and your event borrows the spirit of the roaring 20's when big bands reigned, and attending a night at the theatre ignited a spark within the soul.

The Morton Theatre's versatile space has accommodated recitals, plays, concerts, pageants, lectures, weddings, and more.  Our Downtown location and proximity to the University of Georgia campus offers an ideal venue for access to students, faculty, visitors, and local residents alike. Experience a part of the local history while creating some of your own.
