The Lyric Theatre hosted the 10th annual Chautauqua Performing Arts Festival in Swift Current, July 6-8. Four diverse productions were on stage at this year's event while local performers provided entertainment as opening acts. Festival patrons were also able to enjoy music by local musicians on an outdoor patio set up by the Lyric Theatre during the festival. The Chautauqua Festival recalls an important part of the Lyric Theatre's heritage. The theatre was originally used for Vaudeville shows, which was a series of unrelated theatrical acts and performances.
