Moving to the area in 1995, I knew no one. Lyric Arts provided a great place to gain a sense of community, while enjoying and participating in an art form near and dear to me. It was then, as it is now, truly a COMMUNITY theater. The board is comprised of active participants in the craft and/or the community, people who clearly represent the views of the community at large. This has allowed the theater to grow and morph as needed to continue to be an asset to the community. Now, 16 years later, my dearest friends are either from this group or have joined in the experience. This theater gave my children their wings and self confidence, even the introverted one! My life was irrevocably changed for the positive by the influence of this theater.

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

more ways than I can list. Simply of the people, by the people and for the people. So much the American way. :-)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a living and perpetual endowment.

My wife and I started by going to a few shows here and there. It didn't take very long before we were attending more than we we're not. Next thing you know I'm being asked as a local businessman to be on the board. I was honored to be part of the theatre. So I said yes of course. As soon as you walk in the front door I feel like I'm with family.

Becoming great friends with multiple people from the staff. The club events are one of the highlights of our month for my wife and I.

Lyric Arts does incredible things with what the have but like everything else a little more money never hurts.

My wife and I have enjoyed this artistic gem since its infancy. It has been very rewarding to watch it evolve and mature from a small pocket theatre to a year 'round theatre of professional quality. The staff, volunteers and artistic participants continue to challenge themselves to elevate the quality of each production and to increase the outreach to the community.

This extraordinary company brings classic and contemporary theatre to folks of all ages in an impressive and comfortable venue that allows the audience and intimate artistic experience.

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

It has been my pleasure to see audiences drawn in and take an active role each performance. The smiles, tears, laughter and meditative moments describe the experience at Lyric Arts better than mere words.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Rather than change, I would simply encourage the Company and all the participants to continue to strive for higher and higher levels of artistic excellence.
