Tickets will soon be available for purchase on Midland Community Theatre's website.

The theater will also feature a free open house from 10 to 11 a.m. on February 1. Families can come enjoy performances from the cast, an instrument booth and crafts and games.

MCT is excited to be hosting a FREE to the public open house on Saturday, February 1st for THE MUSIC MAN! This event is open to all ages! Come see a preview performance of the show and enjoy a...
