My wife and I have been attending shows at Lyric Arts since we first moved back into the area 16 years ago. We've always been impressed by the quality of the performances we've seen. Some three years ago, I tried out for, and was cast in, a show at Lyric Arts. Since then, my children and I have participated in a number of shows at this fine organization. I've had the chance to see how deep Lyric Arts is involved in the Anoka area community, and the wonderful experience they provide not only for audiences but also for the volunteer actors, families, stagehands, staff, ushers, and others who come together to make a show happen. I would highly recommend Lyric Arts to anyone who is interested in a good play, a good concert, or in general a great time - as an actor, an audience member, or simply a member of the community. I'm proud to be a part of the excitement at Lyric and look forward to participating for years to come.

A beautiful organization that knows what it wants to be to the community and has matured beyond the whims of individuals by developing processes to separate functions. Yet with the cement of purpose that keeps its eye on the vision fostered in the original black box theater of yesteryear. It provides literally anyone, the opportunity to overcome any esteem issues, accomplish more that they thought was possible, and allow the audience to share the pride.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As I was trying to get my daughters involved in a small personal theater, I was told that the community theater needed adults as well as kids. What followed was over 2 dozen productions where I was sweeping the stage as well as being swept onto it. The other dozens of productions, I just enjoyed from the house seats.

Find a way to support the theatrical mission without having to resort to the slam dunk crowd pleasers which can be found in any community theater in the metro area. Unfortunately...

My family has been involved in Lyric Arts since its inception. It is one of the greatest organizations we have ever been involved with. From a professinal standpoint they put on teh best performances I have ever seen, and are on par with any professional theater in Minnesota. From a personal standpoint I have met so many great and dedicated people and have become great friends with many of them. Thank you Lyric Arts for all that you do!!!

I started volunteering at Lyric Arts as an actor and fell in love with this theater! Their mission of building community and nurturing artists and audiences of all ages through the magic of live theater is lived out every day with quality productions everyone will enjoy and appreciate. Whether it is a comedy, drama, mystery, musical or a children's play, the entire building becomes energized as Lyric Arts works its magic with both volunteers and the guests in their "community".





The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As an actor, I have grown & stretched in ways that I never could have imagined. But the best part of this theater is the friends you are able to make from all walks of life. My community of friends from the theater are of all ages and diverse in their careers, religion and politics. Everyone's love for this theater bonds a unique group together as friends.

I would try to help fund a building remodel/expansion so there was more room to grow their programing.

Lyric Arts is an amazing place for both audiences and artists alike. It's a unique community theater that produces a full season of professional quality productions with all volunteer actors. Some of my favorite moments as an actor and as an audience member in the past 10-years have occurred here.


And as the theater grows the opportunities to experience great theater and performances grow too from increasingly challenging work to a new concert series.

The theater is amazing as well. It's a beautifully restored move theater with plenty of leg room and not a bad seat in the house. They even have a wine bar... how can you go wrong!

The Great!

the joy I and my family get every time we see a new play or attend a new concert.
