Lyric Theatre

Since its inception in 1998, Lyric Theatre has presented a rich tapestry of musical theatre and operatic offerings. These fully staged and costumed productions have included Godspell - 2000 A.D., Hair, The Secret Garden, Sweeney Todd, The Marriage of Figaro, Gianni Schicchi, and Trouble in Tahiti.

Lyric Theatre comprises students not only from the music and theatre departments, but from all academic disciplines. Many of the performers are scholarship recipients from both music and theatre with awards ranging from $2,500 up to $20,000.

With the recent completion of Kimmel Theatre, Lyric Theatre has a new home with all the amenities and capabilities of producing high-end theatrical entertainment. In addition, guest artists are brought in to direct or costume a show, bringing their invaluable professional experiences to students and helping bridge the gap between academia and the "real world."
