2017 Broadway Ball

Lyric’s 22nd annual Broadway Ball gala will take place on Friday, October 6th in the grand ballroom of the beautiful Embassy Suites Hotel near Downtown Oklahoma City. Inspired by the classic musical Hello, Dolly! and its famed restaurant, the Harmonia Gardens, the 2017 Broadway Ball will be an elegant evening of fun, food and fabulous entertainment. You can even expect an appearance from Dolly Levi herself! Chairing the event will be Lori Mathena, joined by Amy Mitchell and Jessica Ockershauser as co-chairs.

This year, Tony Award-winner Beth Leavel will be “back where she belongs” when she takes the stage to sing a variety of her favorite tunes, as well as a number or two from Hello, Dolly!

We are also delighted to honor Mary Deane Streich as our 2017 John Kirkpatrick Award recipient.

This black tie event will includes drinks, dinner and and a performance you won’t want to miss! If you are interested in donating an auction item or would like more information, please contact Catherine Warren at (405) 524-9310x211 or by email.
