Eastland Centre for the Arts Issues Statement

On Saturday, November 9, 2019 the board of directors for the Eastland Centre for the Arts, owners of the Lyric Theatre property, decided to make a change in the operation of the facility. This change was made based on several issues with the way the facility was being operated in direct violation of the corporate by-laws, the agreement with the Eastland Community Foundation upon transfer of the property deed in 2008, and to the mission statement of the organization.

The future direction of the facility will be the original plan of bringing the arts to Eastland through different artistic events of theatrical performances, art and music festivals, dance and other art forms by promoting arts and education events.

The board of directors would like to thank Ruben Zarate for the time and effort he has put into the facility over the past 9 months. We look forward to seeing his success in future endeavors.
