Broadway Ball

Lyric’s 21st annual fundraising gala, A Royal Broadway Ball, will take place on Friday, November 4th in the grand ballroom of the beautiful new Embassy Suites Hotel near Downtown Oklahoma City. Chairing the event will be LeAnn Harmon, joined by Lori Mathena as co-chair.


Come revel in the stunning theme-inspired fashions and join-in the fun with your own regal attire, take-in the beauty and artistry of Lyric’s most exquisite costumes on display exclusively for this event, and be entertained as you enjoy a performance from some of Lyric’s musical theatre royalty.

We are also delighted to honor Don T. Zachritz as our 2016 John E. Kirkpatrick Award recipient.
