Performing with Lyric Theatre


Lyric Theatre, the performing company of The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of San Jose, invites you to perform with us. All roles are volunteer positions (non-AEA), but one of our principal goals is ensuring that our casts and crews find the process of putting together and performing our shows enjoyable and fulfilling.  Beyond that, we are committed to:

• Promoting our signature light opera repertoire

• Maintaining high production values in our shows

• Ensuring the safety of casts and crews from harassment and discrimination

• Upholding principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in casting and all other operations

• Giving students onstage and backstage experience in musical theatre arts
