Help us finish our transformation!

As you may or may not know, Lyric Arts has been working hard at cleaning up our rehearsal room to make it more of a space that inspires creative expression during our rehearsals and workshops and less of a space that inspires a rummage sale. You see, over the last 18 years, we had collected a whole lot of stuff.

Rehearsal Room 1

And, we had numerous pieces of furniture that we didn't use very often but didn't want to get rid of. Thanks to Ramsey Mini-Storage, who donated some storage space to us for a year, we were able to move most of those big, important pieces off-site.

Then, led by Technical Director Karen Tait and Propsmaster Marcie Anderson, we really cleaned house!

Rehearsal Room 2

We got rid of all the things we didn't need, giving us room to organize all the things we did need. (And, to make room for the stuff we still don't have!)

Clean Room

Now, we are on the home stretch and we need your help! We are looking for volunteers in the form actors, designers, technicians, and anyone else who would like to help Lyric Arts complete the transformation of this very important and frequently used space. Please consider giving whatever time you can...even if it is just a couple of hours!

Here are the details:

Friday, August 23, 7:00 to 9:00pm: Clean up in preparation for painting (filling holes and priming for paint)Saturday, August 24, 1:00 to 5:00pm: Painting all the drywall walls in vibrant blue!

Where: Lyric Arts' Back Rehearsal Room (enter through the alley door)

What to bring: Just your best painting clothes and rockin' tunes for the CD player.

Lyric Arts will provide all of the painting materials including brushes, rollers, drop cloth, paint, and the CD player (for the rockin' tunes). We'll also provide cold beverages to keep you refreshed!
