Lyric Theatre

Lyric Theatre has plenty to celebrate this year! It’s their 60th anniversary, and they’ve been named as Oklahoma’s official state theatre. They recently returned to full-scale in-house productions, with a sparkling array of shows planned for summer and beyond.

Celebrating Oklahoma

Lyric is one of Oklahoma’s oldest and most respected theatre venues. Their designation as the official state theatre gives them visibility and helps secure financial support from the community. “It’s a great way to honor the artists and patrons who have been a part of Lyric’s success all these years,” says Producing Artistic Director Michael Baron.

Lyric has a long tradition of nour- ishing local talent, from superstars like Kristin Chenoweth to composers like Curtis Moore. They have premiered many shows that have gone on to be produced across the country. “We always leave room for community involvement both onstage and offstage, and we encourage diversity,” says Michael. “The amount of talent that has trained here is amazing.”

Coming Attractions

Lyric will showcase three musicals this summer. First up is a fully orchestrated production of “The Sound of Music” with Annette Barrios-Torres as Maria. Michael will direct a brand new musical, “The Prom,” and the season will close with “Ain’t Misbehavin’” featuring many Broadway veterans. Later this year, audiences can look forward to a full lineup of fall shows and a new production of “A Christmas Carol.”

Along with its OKC productions, Lyric coordinates many outreach and educational activities. The Musical Interactive program has brought
the magic of musical theatre to over 100,000 students in almost every county of the state.

As a non-profit, Lyric welcomes community involvement. “We want to make sure all Oklahomans know this is their theatre, and everyone is welcome,” says Michael.

Lyric Theatre is located at 1727 NW 16th Street, in Oklahoma City. Contact them at 405-524-9310 or
