In the OhioHealth Symphony Series, Mansfield Symphony Orchestra treats audiences to a diverse repertoire, including a free community concert, holiday pops, and a collaboration with Broadway on Fiddler on the Roof.

The Mechanics Bank Education Series offers abound in the Mansfield Youth Theatre’s production of Disney’s Aladdin Jr., sensory-friendly performances, Teddy Bear Concerts, and engaging workshops like Improv Underground and MindSprouts Showcase.

The Innovation Series presents South Pacific and the Emerging Artists Festival, featuring fresh new plays and musicals. Meanwhile, special events like the US Army Field Band concert promise unforgettable experiences.

The Spotlight Series showcases cinematic gems like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the classic ballet The Nutcracker, complemented by captivating jazz performances and the comedic brilliance of Preacher Lawson.

The Pictures on the Plaza outdoor film series returns, featuring family favorites such as Space Jam, Jumanji, and Shrek.

“We’ve worked hard to bring a season of entertainment for our community that has something for everyone,” stated Renaissance President and CEO Chelsie Thompson. “With a free symphony concert to kick off our season and a variety of affordable pricing options including subscriptions and memberships, we want to ensure the community knows we are here to serve and provide a space where everyone can experience and enjoy all that the arts have to offer.”
