GREAT SOUTHWEST SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
The Tempest is Shakespeare’s final play and the only one written entirely from his imagination. It is not based on any historical source. In The Tempest Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, uses magic to conjure a storm and torment the survivors of a shipwreck, including the King of Naples and Prospero’s treacherous brother, Antonio. Prospero’s slave, Caliban, plots to rid himself of his master, but is thwarted by Prospero’s spirit-servant Ariel.
The performances were between July 23rd-August 19th 2022.
CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN
Thank you to each and everyone who donated to our Children Helping Children fundraising campaign to assist the children of Ukraine. We held this fundraising campaign during our children’s theatre production of Munschapalooza. Audience members donated a total of $250. We at The Lyric matched that amount and donated a total of $500 to UNICEF Canada on behalf of the Children of Ukraine. We originally felt the Red Cross was the route to follow but upon further research feel that UNICEF has a more direct conduit to the children and their families. Therefore we donated the funds to UNICEF on behalf of the children. Thank you so much for your donations and support.

WRITE OUT LOUD
A total of five readings were held between September and February. Authors were representative of a variety of genres: memoir, poetry, children’s literature, young adult literature, and fiction.
The Lyric Digital Stage, saved Write Out Loud last season, once again, as all of it again went digital. All of our authors prepared videos, that were sewed together into a cohesive whole. These were well received, and continue to be viewed long after the event takes place.
We decided to cancel the rest of the season (March and April) when our last two authors were reluctant to make videos. Instead they are our first two authors for the 2022-23 season.
