Great Southwest Shakespeare Festival
As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. This romantic comedy, one of Shakespeare’s most popular, is filled with Cupid’s arrows, hidden identities and a love conquers all ending.
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.

Our annual presentation of Robert Munsch stories dramatized for children, this year entitled MUNSCHAPALOOZA, went on a little later than we had planned. Due to the current COVID-19 Omicron conditions in our area, the Muschapalooza production scheduled for March 17th to 27th, 2022, was rescheduled to April 29th-May 8th, 2022 .
This 2022 year’s production was a ton of fun featuring favorite local actors, and the following great Robert Munsch stories – CLASS CLOWN, PIGS, WE SHARE EVERYTHING, I’M SO EMBARRASSED, JUST ONE GOAL, TOO MUCH STUFF, I HAVE TO GO, SEEING RED!
CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN
Donation to the children of Ukraine COMPLETE!
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.
