We look forward to welcoming you back to entertaining and thought-provoking live performances at Midland Center for the Arts! As we return to indoor programming, our top priority is to ensure that you — our patrons, artists, staff, teachers, students and volunteers — can enjoy memorable experiences in art, science and history with complete confidence in your health and safety. 

Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, particularly the Delta variant both locally and nationally, and in accordance with guidance by local and federal officials, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are notifying all patrons of our Patron Entry Policy:

Beginning September 21, 2021, all people 2 years and older will be required to wear a mask at all times when inside the Center, Museum Exhibits and while seated in the Auditorium and Little Theater.

We will continue to adjust COVID-19 protocols according to recommendations of health and government officials. Additional changes to these protocols will be sent to patrons prior to upcoming events.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or by calling Guest Services at 989-631-5930.

What Does This Mean for Me?

  • All patrons 2+ years of age are required to wear face coverings consistent with CDC guidelines (completely covering the nose, mouth, and under the chin) while inside the Center.
  • Food and drinks will be available for purchase at performances, and permitted for consumption inside the Auditorium and Little Theater. 
  • Face coverings can be temporarily removed to eat and drink, but must be placed back on your face properly between sips and bites.
  • All food and drinks must be consumed while stationary, and not while moving through the facility.
  • Please note that patrons will be seated next to other patrons with no social distanced seating in the Auditorium and Little Theater. 
  • Masks will continue to be required in all spaces at the Center, including the Lobby, Museum Exhibits and Studio Classrooms.
