I Feel the Snow… I Feel the Cold…
I Feel the Air…

Happy New Year! Thank you to everyone who braved the bomb cyclone to audition for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and congratulations to our fabulous cast! A full cast list is included in this issue of The Spotlight, as is a ticket order form so you can join us when we bring the French Riviera to the Flynn Center in April. If you would like to be part of our upcoming production, there are still plenty of ways to be involved. I will be trying my hand at set decoration, but maybe building props or costumes is more to your taste? You can learn more about our many volunteer opportunities on the Lyric website.

As we say goodbye to the holiday season and look forward to the year ahead, there is no shortage of things to look forward to at Lyric Theatre Company. Later this month the Board of Directors and I have our annual retreat where we will strategize ways to strengthen Lyric’s mission as a community arts organization. With the recent opening of the Lyric Creative Space we opened the door to new opportunities for creating and enjoying theater; and we are all excited to discover what those opportunities are.

Speaking of enjoying theater, if you missed our classic Broadway Winter Cabaret at First Night Burlington, there will be a repeat performance at the 50-Plus and Baby Boomers Expo on Saturday, February 3, at the Hotel Burlington and Conference Room. Our traveling Savvy Seniors troupe will also be at the Expo with their unique brand of info-tainment, so come see us in February for a double dose of Lyric–we look forward to seeing you there!

Message from the Board Chair

As we welcome 2018, I wish all of you a very happy and healthy new year! Lyric’s year is off to a strong start, having auditioned and cast Dirty Rotten Scoundrels this week. Thank you and congratulations to the team, all who auditioned, and all involved. I encourage everyone to get their tickets for Lyric’s spring production (April 5-8) at www.flynntix.org. I also recommend checking out the behind-the-scenes opportunities. Volunteering with Lyric is a blast, whether on stage, painting sets, working in the costume shop, creating props, or helping with hair and make-up. With the start of the new year, Lyric’s Board and committees are also hard at work planning for a successful and productive 2018. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions for Lyric.

Working Crews for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
With rehearsals now underway, there is also activity seven days a week at Lyric’s new Creative Facility. All crews welcome new and returning volunteers. Here are details for the crews which have regular work schedules.

Costumes: The costume construction crew is responsible for making or gathering all of the costumes seen on stage. Not only does this involve sewing, but also gluing, scrounging, cutting, dyeing and much more. The costume crew works together in the costume shop at Lyric’s new Creative Facility and/or volunteers may be asked to take projects home to complete. Working on this crew also gives you the opportunity to sign on as a dresser during the run of the show!

Crew Work Times: Wednesdays and Fridays 5:30-8:30, Sundays 1:00-5:00

Contact: Lyn Feinson, lyn@darntough.com or 802-363-6304; Debby Dot Decker, debbyd@gardeners.com or 802-598-3987
