This year might just be our most memorable Give to the Max Day ever. In putting together all the communications that paint a picture about Lyric Arts' need for support, such a beautiful picture emerges. And this year's portrait is a keepsake we can all cherish.
We receive so many wonderful stories on a daily basis. Actors tell us things like, "Lyric Arts is the only theater where I'll work that doesn't pay." "Lyric Arts has changed my life." "I don't get the same experiences anywhere else." So we traveled to some of these artists' homes and some even sent their videos in online to help us share those stories with you.
I love to capture those stories. But even more gratifying is to hear artists, patrons, donors, staff, and others refer to Lyric Arts as "our theater," "we want to see Lyric Arts grow," "we feel like a family." It is heartwarming--at times even a little tear jerking--because people do care so much about Lyric Arts and this community.
Here are just a few of the stories that we have been able to share.
