Curtains up


Get a peek at what goes on behind the curtain at Lyric Theatre’s first-ever open house.

Courtney Silva May 18th, 2011

To kick off its upcoming season, Lyric Theatre hosts its inaugural open house from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, at its Plaza Theatre, 1727 N.W. 16th, and Thelma Gaylord Academy and Production Center, 1801 N.W. 16th.

Throughout the day, teachers from the theater will conduct 40-minute master classes in dance, performance and auditioning at the production center. Those interested in what goes on backstage will have the opportunity to see how sets and costumes are made, as well as meet production staff and designers.

Cristen Shepherd, public relations manager, said the event is a great way for the community to see all that Lyric Theatre has to offer.

“The open house allows people from the community to meet professionals and see some of what goes on behind the scenes at Lyric,” she said. “It’s especially great for families who have kids who want to learn more about theater and any of its departments.”

Starting at noon will be performances from highlights of Lyric’s 2011 season, including songs from “Oliver!,” “Hairspray,” “Ragtime,” “A Chorus Line” and “Altar Boyz.”

The open house is free and open to the public. All shows and master classes are seated on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, call 524-9310 or visit lyrictheatreokc.com. –Courtney Silva
