Lyric First Curtain

Lyric First Curtain

For many young people, their first experience with live theatre kindles a life-long love of theatre. Lyric First Curtain is designed to bring that first theatre experience to students who might not otherwise have access to the arts.

Lyric First Curtain's goal is to cultivate a life-long participation in the theatre, and to help students to view theatre-going as an important part of their world experience by offering complimentary multi-show subscriptions to a wide range of Lyric Stage Company productions. Student groups and teachers from participating schools will receive complimentary tickets to Lyric Stage Company productions for the 2014 - 2015 Season. 

In addition to experiencing professional theatre performances, students will be invited to readings of new plays with regular Season Ticket Holders, may participate in discussions with Lyric Stage Company actors, directors, designers, and playwrights, and take backstage tours to get a behind-the-scenes experience of our theatre. When possible, Lyric First Curtain is able to arrange for in-class visits from Lyric Stage Company artists to supplement the curriculum guides, lesson plans for teachers, and special educational supplements.
