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.

Patience poster
A bigger hit than even HMS Pinafore or The Pirates of Penzance when it was first produced, Patience is one of the gems of the G&S canon, with witty lyrics, wonderful music, and a satirical take on fads and the people who follow them for shallow reasons.  Click on the poster for more information.

Our current issue of The Patter Post has lots of interesting background on both Patience and the æsthetic movement that it satirizes.  In our production, æstheticism is rekindled as the latest fad of 2018.  Click on the image below to read the entire issue.
