COVID 19 update Fbcover smallblog

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

The Opera House and the Foundation are dedicated to ensuring a safe environment for all who pass through our doors. During the past year and a half, the staff has worked hard at staying open, rescheduling, and sharing information for over 60 performances impacted by COVID-19 closures and rerouting of tours. As a nonprofit performing arts center that relies on revenue from ticket sales, this greatly affects the Foundation’s finances.

Did you know?

Since the Newberry Opera House Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please consult your tax professional for more details.

The Opera House is continuing to monitor, evaluate, and update procedures according to the guidelines of the CDC, local, and state authority. As the Governor has removed the mask and reduced seating requirements, the Newberry Opera House will be open at full capacity for the 21-22 season. Please know that lifting the mask requirement does not prohibit anyone at a higher risk or anyone who just feels more comfortable wearing a mask from continuing to do so.  Click here to review the updated safety protocols.
