Judy Morr Theater

Judy Morr Theater Named to Celebrate 
Unrivaled 
Accomplishments of 
Segerstrom Center Executive Judith O’Dea Morr

Venue will become center of new 
American Ballet Theatre William J. Gillespie School 

Center Chairman Lawrence L. Higby announced at the 41st Annual Candlelight Concert that the Center’s Founders Hall would be renamed the Judy Morr Theater in honor of longtime Segerstrom Center executive Judith (Judy) O’Dea Morr. Center President Terrence W. Dwyer noted, “Judy has been an unmatched creative force throughout the life of the Center. This new name is a heartfelt recognition of the tremendous accomplishments of Judy, who has brought the Center to life for more than 30 years with her creativity, her passion and her delightfully generous spirit.” 

Judy Morr Theater will be the heart of the recently announced American Ballet Theatre William J. Gillespie School at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, which opens January 8 & 9 with special complimentary introductory classes. “It will be so rewarding to see future generations of great dancers training in a theater named for someone who has done so very much for dance and for Orange County,” stated Dwyer.
