For the 2020 holiday season, Lyric Theatre Company presented Miracle on Green Tree Drive: A Lyric Family Christmas, an original televised musical special. The show premiered Sunday, December 20 at 7:30 pm, and streaming was available through January 20, 2021. “The show celebrates Lyric’s survival through these tough times, and our unwavering commitment to ring in the holiday the only way we know how: through song and dance and storytelling,” said producer and writer Serena Magnan O’Connell. Through the magic of film and technology, scenes and songs were recorded safely over a few months, adhering to all state of Vermont health regulations on capacity, distance and masking, at Lyric’s Marjorie Howe Rehearsal Space on Green Tree Drive in South Burlington and a few other Vermont locations. Different scenes were staged by small teams to both limit exposure and group interaction, and to utilize the unique sty


les and talents of many long-term and new Lyric members including choreographers, costumers, set designers, prop makers, lighting and sound designers. A cast of 100+ and dozens of crew and creative volunteer members bring to life this nostalgic yet modern variety show, packed full of holiday songs and original scenes with full costumes, scenery and special effects. Your favorite holiday music was arranged for this production by music director, Ashley O’Brien McTernan. Also featured was an exclusive special appearance by cast members of Matilda the Musical, which had been in production for a Spring 2020 showing on the Flynn Center MainStage.
