Middletown Lyric Theatre

Middletown Lyric Theatre

If you're looking for entertainment in Middletown, the Middletown Lyric Theatre could be the place for you! In its 31st season, the Middletown Lyric Theatre has, according to their website, "always strived to bring quality community the community theatre to the Middletown area and beyond."

The theatre's Board of Directors consists of seven members: Managing Artistic Director, Charley Shafor; President Ex-Officio, Cheryl Landen; Member at Large, William "Kip" Moore; Chair of Production, Jennifer Shafor; Chair of Publicity/Front of House, Pam Harris; Chair of Technology and Design, Edwin R. Toy; and Secretary/Historian, Kathy Milbauer.

If you're interested in auditioning for the theatre, it's a great opportunity for students or anyone looking to build their acting resume. Each production consists of a two and a half week rehearsal process. Non-cast stage members act as production stage managers for the opposite production at the time. All actors are paid a stipend for their services.

If you're not an actor but would still like to get involved, the theatre needs volunteers to do things such as constructing and painting sets, selling tickets, handing out programs, and more. And of course, you can always make a donation. Donations help keep ticket prices down, ensure quality programming, and more.

In February, the theatre plans to put on the musical, "Ruthless!" "Ruthless!" is the story of an eight year old girl who will stop at nothing to play Pippi Longstocking in the school play, even murder. Showtimes are as follows: February 11 at 7:15 PM, February 12 at 8:00 PM, February 13 at 8:00 PM, and February 14 at 3:00 PM. All tickets are $15.00.
