I don’t know if you have heard the news, but Lyric Arts is having an absolutely spectacular season. And, your past support is what has helped us get here! I want to thank you from the
bottom of my heart for your helping providing a warm and welcoming home for professional theater (and theater education) right here in downtown Anoka.
Quite literally, Lyric Arts couldn’t entertain and inspire tens of thousands of audience members, artists, technicians, volunteers, and workshop students every year without generous
contributions from theater lovers just like you—and for those gifts, we are enormously grateful.
Director Scott Ford gives his take on the upcoming production of Anything Goes and Kate Beahen sings a song from the show. Find out which song when you watch our Director's Take video for the show that the AM New Yorker calls, “a giddy explosion of escapist romance, combining old-fashioned farce, extended dance breaks and light, breezy songs.”
On Saturday night, Jill Shafer of Cherry and Spoon came to see our production of Moonlight and Magnolias, here's what she had to say...
"Although it became and still remains the highest grossing film of all time (adjusted for inflation), Gone with the Wind had an infamously difficult beginning. Producer David O. Selznick bought the rights to the popular book shortly after it was published in 1936, and spent years obsessing over every detail of the production, hiring and firing directors and screenwriters along the way."
The Golden Age of Hollywood
By Jocelyn Horazdovsky
The play "Moonlight and Magnolias" is set in the golden age of Hollywood cinema. We sat down with the cast of the show to learn more about their favorite classic movies. Watch our interviews with the cast as they reveal what they love most about classic films.
Director Adrian Lopez-Balbontin shares his thoughts on the upcoming production of Moonlight and Magnolias, opening June 2.
Behind each set and prop on the Lyric Arts Stage is a team of volunteers who work to ensure that every detail is accounted for and every nail is in place.
"We have a fantastic crew that is part of our Production Team. We have a number of volunteers who are here almost every day of the week, they build our sets, they put together our props. The incredible sets that you see would not exist without our volunteers," Gina Sauer, Lyric Arts' Volunteer Coordinator said.
For the Set Volunteers, having fun on the job is a big reason why they enjoy coming in each day.

Our Production Director, Brian J. Proball is making his Lyric Arts directorial debut with our production of Revenge of the Space Pandas. Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Mamet, pens this colorful children's sci-fi fantasy full of vibrant characters and hilarious dialogue perfectly suited to our second annual Theater for Young Performers production.
