The Newberry Opera House Guild was created in 2004 to offer financial support to the Opera House and help promote its endeavors throughout the Midlands. The Guild meets monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Opera House.
The Guild is open to anyone with an interest in helping to raise funds to support the performing arts at the Opera House, and in helping to educate and enliven the surrounding communities through the arts. Guild members pay an annual membership fee of $35 (new members under the age of 30 pay a Young Member fee of $20). This fee helps support the work of the Guild which includes organizing 2-3 major fundraising events each year. In recent years, these events have included an annual Oyster Roast, Luau, vendor fair entitled A Fair to Remember, a 50/50 raffle, tag sales and more.
While the Guild’s mission is steeped in the work of raising funds, the organization is a welcoming one that succeeds because of its collegial spirit and abiding philosophy of cooperation and inclusiveness. This spirit grows from the philosophy that the arts make a community whole and should be available to one and all.
