Lyric Repertory Theatre opens this week with more shows, more venues

Richie Call the co-artistic director of the Lyric Repertory Company shows the ornate trim in the theater that was restored to its 1913 look.

The Lyric Repertory Company’s 52nd season opens this week with an expanded summer schedule of six shows performed not only at the historic Caine Lyric Theatre in downtown Logan, but also the Morgan and Black Box theaters on the Utah State University campus.

Richie Call is artistic director at the Lyric.

“The whole reason behind repertory theatre is so that audience members can come and have a different experience each night,” Call explains. “And we think expanding into using these other two spaces will just help enhance that.”

The season opens Friday night with Raisin in the Sun at the Caine Lyric, and then Saturday a matinee and evening performance of Raisin in the Sun at the Lyric.

“Then, the following week, we have another performance of Raisin in the Sun at the Lyric on Thursday, but then we come up to the Morgan Theatre for Friday and Saturday for our first three performances of Mamma Mia.”

Other shows playing in repertory include Clybourne Park, Murder For Two, The Great Society and Size Matters.

Founded by Vosco Call, the company has produced musicals, mysteries, farces, comedies and classics for summer audiences since 1967.
