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
