Mission of The Lyric Theatre


After nearly 50 years of dormancy since it's closing in 1963, The Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center is dedicated to honoring its past while maintaining a strong vision for the further development of both the East End and the greater Lexington & Bluegrass community.

'The mission of the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center is to preserve, promote, present and celebrate diverse cultures with special emphasis on African-American cultural heritage through artistic presentations of the highest quality, educational programming and outreach, film and opportunities for community inclusion.'
