About Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University

Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University is a musical theatre performing organization based on the campus of Tulane University. Summer Lyric's mission is to preserve one of America's greatest art forms by producing the highest quality musical theatre. Our theatre exists to support and expand musicians, actors, singers, dancers, technical artists and most important, students of promise, as well as those whom are already established by bringing together both the university's resources and the community.

Each season Summer Lyric Theatre employs the talents of over 200 paid and volunteer actors, singers, dancers, musicians, directors, choreographers, designers and technical artists. Hundreds of individuals audition each year to be a part of the Summer Lyric experience, an experience many characterize as among the best and most professional theatrical opportunities in the Gulf South region. This standard of artistic excellence, for which Summer Lyric is known, has become a hallmark and gives young emergent talent the opportunity to work alongside professionals in a truly collaborative atmosphere.
