To ensure we are offering the safest environment possible for our patrons, actors, and volunteers, Lyric Music Theater is requiring audience members to have proof of vaccination or a negative (within 48 hours) Covid-19 test to attend a performance for all shows at our theater. Proof of vaccination can be a physical vaccine card or a photo of your card and must be accompanied by a photo ID. Children under 12 are exempt from this policy. In addition, all audience members must wear masks at all times inside the theater.

Lyric Music Theater has been dark since February, 2020 due to the effects of the pandemic. This decision was made to keep our community safe and our doors open. We cannot wait to welcome you back!

At Lyric Music Theater, we strive to be community theater for the entire community. Hatred and bias against any group, ethnicity, or gender have NEVER had any place in our Theater, and that includes oppression, violence, and all acts of racism and/or prejudice.

First and foremost, we value and respect our differences, whether racial; cultural; gender identity; sexual orientation; socioeconomic; religious; physical or mental ability; or country of origin. We affirm our commitment to creating a place where everyone, from all walks of life, feels empowered and welcomed.

It is our responsibility as individuals, and as an institution, to make Lyric Music Theater a welcoming place for EVERYONE. We stand with our Community. That is our moral obligation, and we will stay ever vigilant in upholding these commitments.
