The Show Must Go On!
Midland Theatre Fundraiser
"The Show Must Go On!" has been our rally cry. We hope you will join us on Thursday, November 5 at 7:00pm and show your support for The Midland Theatre and for the impact we make on our community.
We miss live concerts. We miss the energy and excitement of 1200 excited fans singing along to their favorite songs and the thundering applause of a crowd demanding an encore.
We can’t wait to get back to doing what we do best, and that’s enriching the lives of our community….everything from rock shows, country concerts, symphony orchestras, school field trips to dance recitals. We were the first to close and will be the last to reopen. 90% of National Independent Venue Association members just like The Midland Theatre do not anticipate reopening if the shutdown continues another six months, but you can make a difference.
We have taken steps to ensure your safety for this exciting evening featuring a performance by the extraordinarily talented Peter Larson, an update on the arts in Licking County, and a live auction featuring a Garage/Driveway Happy Hour with Gary and Julie Baker, Columbus Crew tickets, Bicycle Tour with Jenny Morehead, 1922 Dinner and a Show, Midland Theatre Concert tickets and more!
RSVP TODAY! If you have any questions, please contact Maryann Crist at 740.349.9218 x 5 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Temperatures will be taken, and we kindly request that guests wear masks and practice social distancing.

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.
