Morris Performing Arts Center Warns Consumers of Dishonest Ticket Brokers
The Morris Performing Arts Center, South Bend, Indiana, warns ticket buyers to beware of dishonest ticket brokers who misrepresent themselves as being the Morris Box Office or having possession of Morris tickets. Do not be deceived by third party ticket resellers charging inflated prices for tickets to Morris Performing Arts Center events. It has been brought to our attention that patrons who have contacted these third party resellers have been overcharged for performances. Also, in most circumstances, the actual seats purchased have been vague in seating location.
The Morris Performing Arts Center does not endorse these third party resellers. The only OFFICIAL ticketing company for the Morris is TicketForce - not Ticket Master or StubHub or any other third party site that may be posing as the Morris Box Office. Patrons should purchase tickets through the Morris Box Office, www.MorrisCenter.org, on the Morris Facebook "Buy Tickets" App created by TicketForce, to guarantee they are paying the correct price for Morris event tickets. Patrons are encouraged to contact the Morris Box Office directly with any questions by calling 574-235-9190 or 800-537-6415 Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
"If the price of a ticket for a Morris event seems extremely high, there is a good possibility that the ticket is not being purchased directly from the Morris," states Dennis J. Andres, Executive Director of the Morris Performing Arts Center. "Patrons should please be aware of where they are purchasing tickets. We want all of our patrons to have the best experience possible at the Morris and it all begins with their ticket buying experience."
Morris Performing Arts Center staff want patrons to continue to enjoy their experience at the Morris as they endeavor to ensure that patrons pay the appropriate ticket value for all performances. If a ticket is purchased via a third party reseller, there is no way to assist patrons should any problems arise, such as lost tickets or refunds for a cancelled event. A ticket purchased via a third party reseller may not ultimately be a valid ticket.
Tickets can be purchased in person at the Morris Box Office, by phone at 574-235-9190 or 800-537-6415, or online at www.MorrisCenter.org. The Morris Box Office is open regular business hours Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and is located at 211 North Michigan Street, South Bend, Indiana. Tickets can also be purchased with credit card at OFFICIAL Morris Ticket Outlets: Hammes Bookstore & Café located in Eddy Street Commons, South Bend, IN; O'Brien Recreation Center, 321 East Walter Street, South Bend; and TG Music, 123 South Main Street, Goshen, IN.
