Lyric’s AWESOME! Summer Camp ~ Session 2: July 10th – 28th

at Flagler Place Jul 10, 2017 12:00 am


“Home is the nicest word there is.”― Laura Ingalls Wilder

Homes come in many different shapes and sizes, but for most, home isn’t a place – it’s a feeling. Campers will join together in a joyous musical celebration of what home means to them.

Performance July 28th at 6:30pm


A typical day at L.A.S.C. is anything but typical. Each day campers will rotate to drama, dance and music groups where they learn new skills, materials and work on their presentations for the grand finale – a show right here on The Lyric stage!

At Lyric’s AWESOME! Summer Camp, we are more interested in developing camper’s character off the stage than on stage. LASC has proven to be a powerful platform to get kids on board with socially responsible behavior. Each session supports a theme to promote teamwork, self-discipline, problem solving, tolerance and kindness. We use the performing arts as a medium to teach practical life skills applications and character-building techniques that translate to everyday life. Each of the teaching staff at LASC are passionately committed not only to arts education, but to bolstering the self-confidence and empowerment of each of our campers. Through working together toward the common goal of presenting the sharing, our blossoming actors learn to overcome adversity, insecurities and respect for direction and different points of view. And it’s just plain FUN!

Don’t want to be on stage? We’ve got an important role for you too! Join our Stage Crew and build props, scenery and help run the show. And just to round things out, we throw in some crazy summer camp fun like a arts & crafts, game show fun, movie days and outdoor recreation.

The Bacon Brothers

at The Lyric Theatre Jun 1, 2017 6:00 pm

ON SALE TO MEMBERS ONLY: Friday, April 7th
ON SALE TO PUBLIC: Friday, April 21st

The Lyric welcomes back The Bacon Brothers, and their signature gritty blend of rock ‘n roll, country, folk and blues. Long before Kevin Bacon became a movie star and pop culture phenom, and before his brother Michael became a go-to composer for film and television, the Philadelphia-based sibling duo had begun their musical collaboration. Making their debut as a duo in 1995, The Bacon Brothers continue to impress audiences and critics over 20 years later with their soulful sound. With Michael on vocals, guitar and cello, Kevin on vocals, guitar, harmonica and percussion, they are a musical force to be reckoned with.

Michael and Kevin Bacon were born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Ruth Hilda, an elementary school teacher, and Edmund Norwood Bacon, a prominent architect who was on the cover of Time Magazine in November 1964. Michael started as a career musician in the 1960s, first playing gigs at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory with younger brother Kevin tagging along. He later moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting, and his musical career took off. Now, an Emmy Award-winning composer, Michael is credited with many original scores for film and television. On March 18, 2016, the world premier for Michael’s four-movement “Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra” took place at The Schimmel Center in downtown Manhattan. Kevin always loved music but chose a different path. Best known for his acting roles in The Following, Footloose, Mystic River and Apollo 13, Kevin has appeared in over 60 films and television shows and has a Golden Globe win along with several Emmy and Screen Actor’s Guild nominations.

Don’t let their roots in Hollywood fool you. According to The New Yorker, “Hollywood hangs like an albatross around the neck of any movie star turned musician, but this duo shakes off the burden of fame with sharply executed rock that has a blue-collar, rootsy edge.” With connections in Nashville and tour dates across the country, The Bacon Brothers may no longer be one of the industry’s best kept secrets.

What Parents are saying: “My kids both had such an awesome time! Not only did they beg me to put them in next year, but they also want to be counselors when they get older :) You had such a wonderful impact on their lives. I can’t tell you how fabulous it is for me, as a Mom, to pick up my kids and listen to them just chatter on and on (and on and on and on) about how great camp was! And for them to work together to learn their lines and the dance moves…well, it just made me very happy. So thank you for that ”
