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.

Our main stage shows are performed at the historic Montgomery Theater in downtown San José with great seats and acoustics everywhere.  Plenty of parking and restaurants are nearby, and a light rail stop is around the corner.

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

In conjunction with our Gianni Schicchi/Trial by Jury main stage production (June 17–25, 2017), Lyric Theatre is proud to announce a Food and Fund Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara/San Mateo Counties.

Through a network of nonprofit partners at over 850 sites, including 83 public K-12 schools and many local colleges, Second Harvest provides nutritious and fresh food to a quarter of a million people each month – approximately 1 in 10 people in these two counties We applaud Second Harvest for this amazing effort, and invite you to visit their website at http://www.shfb.org/ and learn more about the wonderful work of this hardworking nonprofit.

During all five June performances at the Montgomery, Lyric Theatre welcomes its audience members to donate food and/or funds to Second Harvest’s vital work. For your convenience, there are multiple ways and levels of giving at the lobby: from tax-deductible cash, credit card or check donations to non-perishable food dropoff (no glass containers, please).
