THANK YOU for helping to make our 52nd season a successful one! As always, thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you at Dixon Hall for our 53rd season!



Please join us on GiveNOLA Day, Tuesday, June 2nd as we stream Summer Lyric Theatre - Virtually On the Air on Youtube Live at 2:00pm and Facebook Live at 7:00pm. We hope you will consider making a donation to SLT on that day. For more information, click on the image above to link to Summer Lyric's GiveNOLA page and set up a donation beginning today.

Instead of you coming to Dixon Hall, Summer Lyric will be streaming this year's event to your living rooms, home offices, bedrooms or wherever you may have a computer, tablet or phone (the wonders of technology). SLT - Virtually On the Air will feature a who's who of over 50 New Orleans performers, SLT alums and the stars of tomorrow all coming together to help Summer Lyric Theatre raise funds to keep the company operational during this unprecedented time of closures in the performing arts.

Dear Summer Lyric Patrons,

As we experience this new normal, all of NOLA is waiting for the day when we can congregate and enjoy the things that make our city such a wonderful place to live – Jazz on Frenchman, strolling the Garden District, shopping on Magazine Street, a Sunday in City Park and the NOMA, brunch in the Bywater and dinner in the French Quarter, and of course a summer at Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane. Due to social distancing and health-related practices related to the Covid-19 virus, we have been forced to cancel our first three events of the season, Follies in Concert, Legally Blonde and Evita. Presently, we are exploring our options in finding a way to still produce the regional premiere of Once.

Just as SLT found a way to produce following Hurricane Katrina, we are committed to exploring all options to present our 53rd season. This may be in a socially distanced Dixon Hall, outside on the green space or streamed online, but we will be here for you this summer. In addition, we are planning to stream our 50th Anniversary Gala Concert and some other special performances from the Summer Lyric archives.

In regards to subscriptions, we are waiting until the end of the month to make a definitive statement. Patrons who have already purchased their season tickets will receive prorated refunds upon request, unless they would like to give that amount to SLT and receive a tax-deductible donation. Since the SLT staff is fully operational during this hiatus, we would appreciate any support you can give us at this time, but we do understand if you would like the prorated refund.

We greatly appreciate your continued support of Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Michael E. McKelvey
Artistic Director
Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University
