Lyric has built a robust sponsorship program for corporations and individuals who want to help Lyric in a significant way.
Sponsorships are the very reason Lyric is able to provide stunning special effects like a flying car in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG or lifting a Beast into the air only to become “human again” before your very eyes. Sponsorships also help keep Lyric’s ticket prices low enough for Oklahomans to afford, while making Oklahoma City an attractive cultural destination for patrons outside the metro as well as families looking to relocate to the area.
Between our two venues, the Civic Center and the Plaza Theatre, Lyric is able to offer a well-rounded variety of shows to its patrons.
Sponsorships of the different shows also offer a well-rounded variety of benefits, from high-volume logo exposure to VIP preview parties perfect for clients, employees or friends.
