Through the last 40 years, the Newport Opera House Association (NOHA) has brought cultural, theatrical and musical events to Newport and the surrounding communities. Though the Town of Newport owns and maintains the building, NOHA owns and maintains all the theatrical equipment used not only for NOHA-produced events, but also for local events produced by schools, outside groups and private events. Our lighting system, which is over 20 years old, is failing. It's so old that finding and procuring parts to keep it operational has become difficult and expensive. A new lighting system will not only literally keep our theatrical lights on, it will save us money and labor. Our current system is cumbersome to control, and replacing parts and light bulbs is a large expense. Our new system will allow us to more easily created dazzling lighting effects and with LED lights, will save us money on bulbs, gels, and labor. Help us complete Phase 1 of our "Light Up the Opera House" Capital Campaign, which will help us replace the infrastructure of our lighting system. Follow up phases will allow us to slowly replace our entire lighting system. All funds donated here will go exclusively to the fund for our new lighting system.
