The Lyric Theatre is a vibrant, sustainable, community-animated theatre; Swift Current’s producing and presenting home and venue(s) for the performing arts.

In addition to preserving and enriching the health and structure of this historic building, our mission is to seek new ways to repurpose The Lyric and increase community inclusion in every aspect.

The whole is to be undertaken with a human approach to self-awareness, community pride, community animation, and the kind of insight into the human condition that only the performing arts can provide. As a core purpose of our mandate, The Lyric Theatre provides access and opportunity to culturally diverse artists and audiences.

The whole is to be realized in a fiscally responsible manner.
