The Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center is pleased to announce a new program to better connect with the East End Residents, 'East End Lyric Access.' This program was created by Lyric Executive Director Donald Mason, and will begin the summer of 2018. The 'East End Access' is a way for the Lyric Theatre and East End Residents to connect directly and support each other. This program was created in order to give East End Residents access to musical and theatrical events at the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre will be giving away four seats exclusively to East End Residents. The Lyric Theatre will also be giving East End Residents first opportunity to sign up for our programs. Scroll down the page for upcoming East End Giveaways.
