Welcome to Lyric Theatre!

Lyric Theatre of San José is a non-profit community theater group which has been dedicated to preserving and presenting our vocal musical heritage for over 40 years.  Our annual season consists of shows by Gilbert & Sullivan, Broadway composers, and American & European operetta composers.  Our productions receive many fine reviews for the quality and skills of the performers, orchestra, conductors, and stage directors.  Our sets and costumes are designed by professionals with major stage experience.  In summary, we provide excellent performances, all for a very reasonable ticket price.

We have moved from the Montgomery Theater, our home for many years.  As of  October 2017, we are performing our main stage shows at the Theater at San José City College.  Click the image above for information about the theater.

Lyric Theatre is a member of Theatre Bay Area and the Silicon Valley Arts Coalition.

Have you ever wanted to be on stage instead of in the audience.  Here’s your chance.  We are holding auditions in May for our October production of The Wizard of Oz.  Click the picture below, the AUDITIONS tab, or the AUDITIONS button at top right for details.
