The Friends of the Midwest Theater has been awarded a Nebraska Touring Program $2,000 grant by the Nebraska Arts Council to support the upcoming performances and residency activities.

Nebraska Arts Council’s Executive Director, Suzanne Wise, commended the Midwest Theater for its programs, noting that “Friends of the Midwest Theater does an outstanding job of providing arts activities in our region. It is through fine organizations like this that Nebraska’s children receive a better education in the arts, and the quality of life is improved for all Nebraskans.”

The showings are as follows;

“Is there a Doctor in the House?”
Feb 26, 2020 7:30pm
Oh no! A bizarre illness has struck the orchestra and they cannot play the concert. Maestro Ian and the audience team up to help Dr. Dolce in this medical, musical caper that examines the orchestra’s instrument families. Mission Imagination combines a child’s love of storytelling with the power of symphonic music in an up-close and playful setting. The program’s dynamic format puts kids in the center of the action, making them active participants in their own learning. Will you help the orchestra feel better in time for the big concert?
Families are invited to visit the instrument petting zoo in the lobby before or after the show.
