Lyric Theatre has been and will be busy

Now entering its 105th year, the Lyric Theatre still manages to stay young at heart.

During the past year, we hosted 38 programming events, a three-day Chautauqua, a Pride celebration, two Christmas matinées and nine special events.
Our building was rented more than 70 times to a variety of organizations and individuals, including Blenders concerts, SCIT performances, Stage Door Kids Theatre classes, CD release parties, weddings, meetings and Christmas parties.
We’ve received an incredible amount of community support to make it all possible.
The City of Swift Current’s support helps us employ our talented program manger, Corla Rokochy, along with her helpers, Maria Doyle and Vashisth Trivedi.
A special thanks is owed to the Saskatchewan Arts Board, along with generous businesses, for funding our programs.
Their financial support attracts new talent to our community and places the spotlight on local artists.
Since we officially re-opened in 2006, the Lyric has nurtured talent now shaping the cultural landscape.
Musicians such as Colter Wall got his start at the popular Lyric Open Stage. Last month, Rolling Stone said he’s one of the 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know Right Now.
The greatest gift of all is seeing young artists blossom on the Lyric stage.
Looking towards the future, we’re ready to expand and we’ll need the community’s help. 
For example, by installing an elevator in the building, the public would once again have access to the basement and upper floors.
This expansion would offer greater studio, performance and rehearsal space, while creating new opportunities for business and culture. 
In the new year, please remember to invest in the arts and encourage our elected officials to do the same. Yes, we do offer charitable tax receipts.
The Lyric has so much more to offer and room to grow — the show is just getting started.
Next month, don’t miss an evening with Connie Kaldoron Friday, Jan. 20.  Tickets are available at Pharmasave.

Joey Donnelly is a Lyric board member.
