Wednesday, May 19, 2010

The Lyric Theatre was recently honored at the annual United Way of Martin County Champions of the Community Awards Dinner for their sponsorship of the CHARACTER COUNTS! Student of the Week Ticket Program. Beginning last fall, the Lyric provided up to 4 complimentary tickets to each of the Student of the Week recipients, allowing the students and their families to attend a family-friendly show at the Lyric and enjoy the experience and thrill of live theater.  On one special evening, students even got to meet and be photographed with the actors.  “It is quite an honor to be recognized for doing something that allowed us to celebrate students doing good things,” said Lyric Executive Director, John Loesser. Over 152 tickets were provided to the families, compliments of the Lyric Theatre.
