Support The Arts

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.

Midland Theatre Supporters and Sponsors

Young people learn in many ways. The emotional rush of a live performance could be the key to unlocking a world of learning. With generous support from Mortellaro McDonald's, The Midland Theatre is thrilled to provide this experience for thousands of students each year.
