This year we are putting exclamation point on a momentous chapter in the story of Lyric Theatre Company.

While the last few years have been trying for all arts organizations, thanks to supporters like you we are emerging stronger, more connected, and more diverse than ever before. Your support has kept the lights on and the music playing, and this community owes you a tremendous debt of gratitude. The best way to begin to thank you is by continuing to do the work that you have come to expect from Lyric as we enter our next era. We were overjoyed to kick off our summer with Elephant & Piggie’s We Are in a Play! which marked our third annual Theatre for Young Audiences production, presented throughout the community free-of-charge. We are also offering an expanded slate of LyricKids camps—a summer of investing in our future by supporting the next generation of young local performing artists. We are already revving up for our upcoming Flynn Main Stage productions with the Vermont premiere of The Prom in the fall, and The Wizard of Oz next spring. We’re capping off this year of celebration next June when we will present The Sound of Music: In Concert at Trapp Family Lodge with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.

In the next year we will be marking a milestone that might have seemed unimaginable to the small group of friends who decided that this community deserved a quality theatrical outlet during their holiday celebrations in 1973. I am asking you to launch us into our golden anniversary season with the momentum and strength that our volunteers and audiences deserve. No gift is too small, as we have always proudly been powered by collective strength. Make a donation now that honors our first half-century, and that will ensure this is only just the beginning of our story.

See more about our story in this special video made with our friends at Mount Mansfield Media, and make sure to hit

Debut Donors

For all of the young professionals and recent graduates who love and value this now historic community organization, the time has come to also become its stewards. The best way to do this, is by becoming a Debut Donor today.

Thankfully, local arts are a place where modest donation amounts can have a real, profound impact. For a few dollars a month, a small group of young donors like you could costume someone for the Flynn stage, or pay for the tuition of a LyricKids camper in this summer. Think about what Lyric means to you, and if it’s worth an investment equal to a streaming service, or plate of fries on a Saturday night.
