The Lyric Repertory Company is a small professional theatre founded in 1967 by W. Vosco Call. For the past 50 years the Lyric Rep has produced musicals, dramas, mysteries, farces, comedies, and classics to the delight of audience members from Cache Valley and visitors from around the country.
The Lyric Rep brings in members of Actors’ Equity Association and other professional actors and guest artists to work side by side with advanced theatre students of Utah State University’s Caine College of the Arts.
The Salt Lake Tribune calls the Lyric Repertory Company "one of the best-kept secrets of Utah's theater scene." The Lyric Rep performs in the historic Caine Lyric Theatre in downtown Logan. It is headed by Executive Producer Craig Jessop, Artistic Producer Adrianne Moore, and co-artistic directors Dennis Hassan and Richie Call.
About the Caine Lyric Theatre
The Thatcher family built and opened the Lyric Theatre following the Thatcher Opera House fire in 1913. The opera house was located on the second floor of the bank building on the corner of Center Street and Main Street a few doors to the east. It burned on the same day as the sinking of the Titanic.
Newly restored and expanded in the summer of 2001, "The Crown Jewel of Center Street," opened to the public with a performance of Peg O' My Heart, and was renamed the Caine Lyric Theatre. The restoration and expansion included a new lobby/reception area, restrooms, storage space, green room, dressing rooms and gallery. The theatre celebrates a history of more than 150 productions and more than 1200 performances since the original opening of the theatre.
