The Lyric Theatre was founded in 1963 and is Oklahoma City's only professional, year-round musical theatre company. Performing both classic and contemporary musicals at the Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre in the Civic Center Music Hall, Lyric also features edgier, more mature shows performed on the "Second Stage."


The Lyric Theatre business office and academy is located in Oklahoma City's Plaza District at 1727 NW 16th St. Summer performances take place at the Civic Center Music Hall at 201 N. Walker downtown while other shows are held at the historic, renovated Plaza Theatre (pictured).
