Lyric Theatre re­ceives $10,000 grant

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SUNDAY LIFE -

Lyric Theatre of Ok­la­homa re­cently re­ceived a $10,000 grant from the Carolyn Wat­son Ru­ral Ok­la­homa Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion’ Com­mu­nity Grant pro­gram. The grant will as­sist the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s mu­si­cal in­ter­ac­tive pro­gram, al­low­ing Lyric to in­crease ser­vices to stu­dents in ru­ral Ok­la­homa.

Un­der­writ­ten solely by cor­po­rate and foun­da­tion sup­port, Lyric is able to pro­vide the pro­gram free to in­ter­ested schools. The tour­ing mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion fea­tures an orig­i­nal script with se­lect songs from a Broad­way mu­si­cal. As told through songs and sto­ries, a trav­el­ing troupe of pro­fes­sional per­form­ers ed­u­cates stu­dents about the his­tory of the mu­si­cal and its cre­ators.

For the 2018-19 school year, Lyric plans to re­vive its pop­u­lar Ok­la­homa! In­ter­ac­tive pro­gram.

For more in­for­ma­tion, go to lyricthe­atreokc.org/art­soutreach or call 524-9310.
