Marshalltown Arts & Civic Center

Martha-Ellen Tye Playhouse

In 1969, a significant addition was built onto the Fisher Community Center, know known as the Marshalltown Arts & Civic Center. Bill Fisher’s sister Martha-Ellen Tye and the Fisher Governor Foundation built the 450 seat Martha-Ellen Tye Playhouse. The inauguration of the new Martha-Ellen Tye Playhouse took place on May 9, 1969 and was a grand event with a sold-out performance of the play YOU KNOW I CAN’T HEAR YOU WHEN THE WATER’S RUNNING.
