2017 Broadway Ball

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Lyric’s 2017 Broadway Ball! It was an unforgettable evening of sophisticated fare, fine libations, and a performance from one of Broadway’s modern leading ladies, Beth Leavel. We were also honored to present the John E. Kirkpatrick Award to longtime Lyric’s supporter and outstanding civic volunteer Mary Deane Streich. We would like to extend a special thank you to our corporate sponsors and supporters for their contributions to this event.

All of the contributions to this event benefit Lyric’s projects and programming, including Lyric’s Thelma Gaylord Academy, Lyric’s arts outreach program and, of course, Lyric’s world-class productions, enriching the lives of countless Oklahomans.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
