The Lyric Theatre and Council
The Lyric Theatre is a non-for-profit 501 (c) 3 organization overseen by The Lyric Council Board of Directors. The Lyric Council was first formed in 1995 with the goal of restoring The Lyric Theatre and is now the governing body of The Lyric.
The Board of Directors consists of twelve members, elected by Lyric members annually, who serve for three-year terms. All Lyric members are invited to nominate and vote for new Board members at the Council's annual meeting, usually held in February. Board members meet monthly to discuss the Theatre's financial reports, programs, and other theatre business.
The Mission of the Lyric Council is to enhance community participation in arts and culture by:
- maintaining and preserving the Lyric Theatre;
- partnering with community arts groups, through the Lyric Theatre and the Community Arts and Information Office, to provide a diversity of films, live programs, arts information, and gallery opportunities and exhibitions to the community;
- establishing and promoting Blacksburg, Virginia as an arts destination for the region.
We always welcome your comments! Please feel free to email or place your suggestions in the comments box in The Lyric lobby.
The Theatre office is run by a small, part-time staff, dedicated to running an efficient community theatre with something for everyone. Let us know if you have suggestions for Lyric events or film screenings!
At each evening show, a House Manager, or Projectionist, takes care of everything from overseeing the cleanliness of facilities to running the movie through the projector; these folks do it all. Say hello to your projectionists and let them know if you need any assistance!

Live Event Staff
These folks make our Live at the Lyric events happen. You'll often see John ensuring an outstanding experience, whether he is running lights or sound. If you're wondering how we get the phenomenal acts we do, look no further than Len. So much of what we are able to do at the theatre is because of these three.
