Not only will this year’s Cabaret spotlight some well loved Broadway show tunes, it will feature some of Lyric Arts’ favorite players! Lyric Arts is thrilled to have some of the best and brightest performers that that have graced the Main Street Stage in the past year to return to help us bring this wonderful fundraiser to life!
The “Cabaret,” as it has come to be known, is the only annual fundraising event benefiting Lyric Arts Company of Anoka, a 501(c)(3) non-profit community theater. The fundraiser is a chance for the community to show their support of Lyric Arts, while at the same time enjoying some of the theater’s excellent entertainment. Director of the Cabaret, Rebecca Rizzio added, “With the theme for this year’s Fundraising Cabaret, we are taking the opportunity to poke a little fun at ourselves…There are huge Broadway musicals that Lyric Arts CAN afford to produce…and does. And, they do it with tireless energy and boundless imagination.”
The fundraiser helps to support the many programs that Lyric Arts offers the community throughout the year. In additional to stage performances, Lyric Arts offers productions just for children, educational outreach programs, workshops, and an intimate live music events as part of their “Music in the ‘Burbs” Concert Series. “Lyric Arts is such a unique place for artists and audiences alike. It truly is a home for the arts in the North Metro. But it's more than that. It's a family of actors, directors, artist and audience members sharing the magic of live theater year round. There is no place like Lyric Arts anywhere in the world and something this special needs to be supported and nurtured,” commented Rizzio.
