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, The Licking County Foundation, The Ohio Arts Council, L Brands Foundation, Kohl's Cares and Mary E. Babcock Foundation
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.

Do you need assistance covering the cost of student transportation?

The Ohio Arts Council has a grant program that may be able to help.
