Rooted in the performing arts, Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College offers programs and productions that encourage reflection, examination and discovery; and that provide entertainment, education and opportunity to professionals, learners and community members in all stages of life.

Dear Friends,

This season we are, literally, flying high! Whether bouncing to the rafters with circus troupe Flip FabriQue, soaring to Neverland with Peter Pan, or leaping across the stage with EVIDENCE and Pilobolus; this year at Harbison Theatre is sure to inspire!

Every year, we welcome thousands to share in performances that invite you to think, laugh, and celebrate together. What happens on stage, though, is only part of our work at HT@MTC. Each year, thousands of students participate in workshops and master classes and attend special matinee performances. These students vary in age, artistic experience, and ability – but all benefit from time spent with professional performers and arts educators. All are inspired to be their best on and off the stage.

Additionally, the work of the HT@MTC Performance Incubator is one-of-a-kind in the United States. Each year, we invite a professional performer, living in the Midlands, to create a new work that is suitable for touring. With the support of the theatre’s technical and marketing team, the work premieres on our stage before taking on an indefinite touring life – increasing the sustainability of a professional artistic career for artists who remain active residents in our community.

These diverse opportunities are made possible by your support. This year, we are excited to expand opportunities within the Harbison Stage Society. Your donations ensure our continued offerings throughout the community – and membership comes with some fun perks, too!

As always, thank you for joining us at Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College. We look forward to seeing you this season!

Shows sell out quickly at Harbison Theatre, so we encourage you to grab your tickets early.  Ticket packages and flex passes are the best way to ensure your spot when the curtain rises. We think you’ll find our productions at the theatre just one way that Midlands Technical College broadens your horizon here in the Midlands. We’re the real deal.
