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.

Yellow Bus Series

Sponsored by Mortellaro McDonald's
Mortellaro McDonalds Yellow Bus

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.

Sharing the magic of the performing arts with your students, this series explores concepts like sequencing, retelling and comparing different versions of the same story. Beyond the academic merits, a field trip to the Midland may be a child's only chance to see a live show in a beautiful theatre. At just $5 per person, the value is undeniable. All performances are 45-60 minutes.

Thanks to the support from great organizations such as Mortellaro McDonalds, The Ohio Arts Council, The Licking County Foundation, The Limited, Kohl's Cares and Mary E. Babcock Foundation, we are able to provide some financial assistance to help offset the cost of attending these special performances. Funding is limited, and The Midland Theatre may not be able to accommodate all financial needs, so prompt response is of the utmost importance.

Pulling Together

Musher and educator Tasha Stielstra has combined her five years of classroom teaching with over fifteen years of mushing to create an interactive presentation about teamwork and how it relates to sled dogs and children. The "Pulling Together" program is centered around the core values of being safe, kind and responsible citizens. Programs can also be individually modified to meet curriculum standards, highlight pieces of literature (Call Of The Wild, WoodSong, Akiak, Stone Fox, etc.), and is suitable for grades Kindergarten through 8th.

Doktor Kaboom! "Live Wire - The Electricity Tour"

Grab your lab coats and safety goggles, because this one-man show can be explosive! Doktor Kaboom is back by popular demand with an all-new interactive science comedy show, this time focused on the amazing power of electricity. Our favorite stand-up scientist with the thick German accent will keep crowds transfixed and rolling on the floor with his increasingly spectacular experiments. With his hilarious improvisational style, no two shows will be exactly the same--you may even be called on stage to help with one of his zany demonstrations! If you're ready to get psyched about science, just say "ja!" to Doktor Kaboom!" Click here for the study guide.
