LIGHT UP THE OPERA HOUSE!
Over forty years ago, a group of citizens came together to rescue the Historic Newport Opera House, with the goal of restoring it for use as an artistic and theatrical hub for the community. Thus, the Newport Opera House Association was born, and over the ensuing years, thousands have enjoyed our offerings both in the audience and by participating onstage or backstage. Beyond that, our theatrical systems have been used by the town, the community, and private parties for all sorts of events.
Unfortunately, our theatrical lighting system is now failing, and threatens to literally darken our stage. This is a multi-stage project, but the priority is stage one, which will cost $30,000, but will ensure that our lights will reliably and affordably stay lit. We are grateful to say we have already raised approximately half of what we need for this stage; but we are hoping to raise the remaining amount before the end of the year, so that the lighting system will be ready to go for the Newport Winter Carnival Pageant and our spring musical!
Donate today to ensure that the Newport Opera House Association can continue to grow and thrive in its mission to bring artistic and theatrical opportunities to the Newport area.
