Mask Policy at Midland Center

As of April 26, 2022, masks are no longer required for patrons at Midland Center for the Arts unless specifically requested by the artists we present on our stages. 

In the interest of caution and caring for one another, the Center continues to strongly encourage patrons to wear masks while visiting and attending events at the Center. Midland Center staff, educators and volunteers will continue to wear masks when interacting with all of our guests.
