 *As things are changing rapidly, please visit this page often for up-to-date information as artists postpone, change date, or cancel their tours.*

The Newberry Opera House has postponed all shows through May 28, 2020, in response to COVID-19. The Opera House and the Foundation are dedicated to ensuring a safe environment for all who pass through our doors. The staff is hard at work rescheduling and sharing information for almost 30 performances impacted by this suspension. As a nonprofit performing arts center that relies on revenue from ticket sales, this closure greatly affects the Foundation’s finances.

Fortunately, ‘Giving Day’ is right around the corner. This year Midlands Gives and Giving Tuesday are joining forces and being held simultaneously on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.  You can help demonstrate the power of generosity to heal a fractured world and know that while the theatre is dark, The Opera House remains the light - a beacon of hope that with your help will return to raise the curtain.

The Opera House is continuing to monitor, evaluate, and update procedures according to the guidelines of the CDC, local, and state authorities. As circumstances are very fluid at this time it is unclear as to whether more performances will be affected. 

The Newberry Opera House is currently working to confirm new dates for postponed performances when possible. If you have tickets to a performance affected by COVID-19 (listed below), you will be contacted prior to the original show date. With immediate concerns, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Performances affected by COVID-19


Act II:

Keep Your Seat – Hang On To Your Tickets:
If there is a new show date or we anticipate announcing one soon, we suggest you keep your same seats for the new date. We do ask that you let us know if that is what you wish to do, but you don’t need new tickets, just make sure to mark your calendar for the new date and bring your original tickets on the night of the show. Send us an This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know you wish to keep your tickets. The exception to the "keep your tickets" rule will be early shows where reseating to accommodate 50% capacity is applied. In those instances, you will be contacted regarding new tickets, which will be emailed to you.

Please note that if you choose to keep your tickets for The Isaacs Christmas Show without Terry Bradshaw on November 20, ticket prices will be Tier 1: $65 / Tier 2: $60 / Tier 3: $55 so you will receive new tickets and a gift card for the balance of the ticket cost.

Donate The Value of Your Tickets:
If there is not a new date or you cannot attend the new date, we ask that you consider donating your tickets. With so many postponed shows, times like these can be devastating for non-profit Arts organizations like ours. As a 501c3, any donation to the Newberry Opera House would be tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. We ask your help in weathering this storm.

Exchange Your Tickets:
The next option is to exchange your tickets for another performance. Check out NewberryOperaHouse.com for a full list of performances for which you can exchange your tickets. (If the ticket is for a greater value, then you would owe the difference.)

Get A NOH “Gift Card” Credit On Your Account:
Lastly, you can choose to receive a gift card or credit on your account for the value of your tickets. Gift Cards are good for up to 5 years. We are already busy scheduling shows for next season, and we know you will have lots of great events on which to use your credit. If you would like to take advantage of any of these options, you must contact the NOH Box Office no later than April 28, 2020 at 5:30 P.M., which will be here quickly.

Moving Forward:

The Newberry Opera House Foundation Board and administration will be evaluating performances moving forward.

THE SHOW WILL GO ON!
