We are truly fortunate to have Lyric Arts in our community as a place to gather and share a love for an art form that has the ability to move like none other. My wife and I choose to support Lyric Arts as part of our annual charitable contributions. We can think of no better way to express our appreciation than to do our part to help ensure the sustainability of this artistic home and the theatrical homecomings it makes possible to all.

I love Lyric Arts as it is more than a theatre, it’s a gathering place where folks come together to express themselves through the arts. It’s a place that truly embraces the idea of community and what it means to give back. It’s a place that makes people smile and feel connected to a world that is larger than many can even imagine. It’s a place that inspires, and most of all a place that everyone can feel accepted.

Recognizing Lyric Arts Main Street Stage as an intimate setting for vibrant theater experiences of original, innovative works and timeless classics, and a showcase for Minnesota artists; encouraging talent; nurturing the next generation of patrons; giving voice to those historically underrepresented; amazing the audience; and engaging the community in the arts is both a privilege and a joy.
— Pat Schommer
I wanted to give back to the theatre that has given so much to the community it serves. Lyric Arts doesn’t feel like a business, it feels like home. Alan Jackson said it best, “You Can Always Come Home”.
