Lyric Understudies is a group of inclusive theatre lovers that support the efforts and artistic vision of Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma through social events and theatre engagement and is for anyone who loves theater and wants to connect to other theatre minded people in a fun and sociable setting. That includes young people, young at heart people, and all those in between. There is something for everybody whether it’s the feeling of giving to an organization your care about, getting discounted tickets, or attending social events.

There will also be other events like special dance classes, shopping events, cast talk backs, backstage tours, and more!
