Spectator Information

From the MEPA Board:

The health and safety of our community is at the forefront of our minds as we make the difficult decision to end our MEPA 2020 season. We are acting on the orders from the State of Ohio, recommendations from show hosts, as well as following the lead from WGI.

We appreciate, recognize and want to celebrate all the accomplishments of our performers, staff members, parents, and fans. We will still announce scholarship winners, we will honor our Seniors and age outs, we will celebrate all that we can. This was not an easy decision, nor one that we take lightly. We are not only board members, but we are directors, instructors, parents, and fans of our activity. We love the energy and enthusiasm that many have with wanting to perform one last time, but for financial, logistical and safety reasons we must accept that our 2020 season has ended. We love our meeples and grieve with you, but also celebrate the season that we have had together.


Adults (age 19 and over) - $12
Seniors (62 and up) - $10
Students (age 7-18) - $9
Children (6 & Under) - FREE
