Without the generosity of The Midland Theatre family and friends, we would not be what we are today. There are a number of ways you can be a part of something very special here at The Midland Theatre.

The Nutcracker

Presented by The Central Ohio Youth Ballet
The Nutcracker

Central Ohio Youth Ballet is celebrating its 22nd anniversary season as a youth ballet company and will be performing its 21st production of "The Nutcracker" this Thanksgiving weekend at The Midland Theatre. Central Ohio Youth Ballet began in 1994, with a cast so small they could only perform Act II of The Nutcracker. Now they perform the entire ballet, and this year's cast has more than 75 performers, with even more youth and parent volunteers behind the scenes making the onstage magic happen. Working with dancers of varying abilities and levels, artistic director Robert Cole works to draw out each individual dancer's strengths and reinvents the choreography each year, which results in a professional-quality production. This year;s production will also feature a new backdrop for The Land of the Sweets designed by local artist Dennis Kohler.
