From the first meeting in 1973, when Howard Delano and Polly Nulty gathered together a group of friends who wanted to do a musical, to the massive cast and crew hard at work on the current production, Lyric Theatre Company has come a long way. Our first musical was presciently titled How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and cost $9,000 to mount. Our upcoming production of Les Miserables has a price tag of over $130,000. For all of these years Lyric has functioned as an all-volunteer organization. Lyric builds community and creates opportunity both economic and artistic. Lyric is participatory, diverse, inclusive and that rare organization that promotes and celebrates a multigenerational world. There is not only a growing need for Lyric's activities, but a growing need for the social capital that Lyric builds in our community.
Lyric is now at a critical juncture in its history. We can meet these growing needs but our current facility is woefully inadequate. I hope you will read this program, learn more about Lyric and consider taking a role in this . . . our most important production. -John Gravel, Campaign Chair
