The Lyric Theatre in Swift Current was the first Vaudeville theatre constructed in Saskatchewan, and for more than a century it has been a place for people to gather to share music, drama and art.
Built in 1912, the Lyric Theatre began with vaudeville productions, and over time it has seen silent movies, “talkies” and taverns. Vaudeville continues as part of the Lyric program today, along with musicals, spoken word performances, regular open stages, and new media events.
The Lyric’s program includes Open Stage, Improv Night, Write Out Loud, and the annual Chautauqua, held every summer in July, featuring 4 days of live theatre performances with actors from across the country.
The Lyric Theatre is managed by the Southwest Cultural Development Group. For more information call 306-773-6292 or visit www.lyrictheatre.ca.
