*Denotes first time in a Lyric Theatre main stage production

Lyric Theatre Company is proud to shine the spotlight on The Mahana Magic Foundation as our Community Partner during Mamma Mia!. Mahana Magic is a Vermont based organization that provides support for children who have a parent or loved one with cancer.  It was started by Greg Couture who realized that when he was diagnosed, there was no real support for his two young daughters.  There are over 10,000 children in Vermont who have a parent with cancer and they are often the forgotten victims.

If you have seen a Lyric show in the last thirty years, you have had the privilege of seeing this man’s work shine on center stage.  This February, the Lyric family and the Burlington community lost a dear friend, Ron Cook.  Ron was a long time Lyric member, designing hair for countless shows.  Ron took great pride in making sure everyone who stepped on the Flynn stage felt confident and beautiful.

As a performer, I love the details that help a character come to life.  Ron’s attention to these details helped every actor who sat in his chair give their very best performance.  I saw all the of the extra hours he would put into a show, all the time away from the chaos of backstage, bringing countless wigs back to the salon to touch them up or to get them “just right”.  Ron was my co-worker and my friend for the last twenty years.  In his words, we will “carry on” but his sparkle and his talents will truly be missed on so many levels.
