Lyric Arts’ mission is to enrich lives by creating meaningful performing arts experiences that ignite the imagination, inspire the spirit, and engage the community. We are a growing, non-union professional theater, deeply rooted in the communities we serve, producing inclusive work that entertains, educates, stimulates, and is reflective of the diversity of our audiences and artists.

Located in the heart of historic downtown Anoka, Lyric Arts is the only full-time, year-round theater in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis, providing access to the performing arts for hundreds of artists and tens of thousands of audience members each year. Lyric Arts presents eight productions per season, including a unique mix of comedies, dramas, classics, and musicals.

The company also presents a concert series, theater arts workshops, and educational outreach programs.


Lyric Arts is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in hiring and strongly encourages those from underrepresented groups to apply. Lyric Arts prohibits discrimination in employment against any employee or job applicant because of that person’s race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, disability, genetic information, age, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, familial status, veteran status, membership in a local human rights commission, or any other legally protected status.


Lyric Arts Company of Anoka, Inc., acknowledges that we gather on the traditional, ancestral, and contemporary land of the Dakota People and honor with gratitude the land itself and those from whom it was taken.

The area on which our building resides is the home of the Wahpekute People, one of the four groups that make up the Santee (or Eastern Dakota), and one of the seven Dakota, Nakota, and Lakota groups which form the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ—an historic alliance which is translated as “the Seven Council Fires” and sometimes erroneously referred to as the Great Sioux Nation.

We acknowledge that we do not own this land, which holds great spiritual, historical, and cultural significance to its original inhabitants, and was stolen through broken treaties and forced colonization by White settlers. Furthermore, we recognize, support, and advocate for the sovereignty of the Native Nations in this territory and beyond.
