When we say Lyric Arts is your theater, we truly mean it. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Lyric Arts is only owned by the communities we serve, making you a partner in this theater’s continued success. It is your love and support that have helped Lyric Arts grow, and for that, we are endlessly thankful. Now, we are looking to you to help us continue to thrive.

Lyric Arts has seen enormous change over the last 21 years, particularly over the past four seasons. We have begun receiving recognition and accolades from all over the Twin Cities and the local theater community, thanks to our dedicated artists and loyal supporters—like you! While this period of success has been exciting and rewarding, there is still so much to be done. We would like to secure funding to continue to grow our education program, increase the small gas stipend for actors, update antiquated sound and lighting equipment, and more. 

Unfortunately, we also have the tremendous challenge of accomplishing these goals in the face of a budget shortfall and the loss of a major source of funding.

Your continued support and renewed dedication to Lyric Arts today will help us make certain we are able to continue to fulfill your theater’s mission. Would you make a tax-deductible donation today?

This is your theater. Everything that happens here happens for you and because of you.  
For these things to continue to happen, we need you. We need your help.

In gratitude,


Laura Tahja Johnson
Executive & Artistic Director
