Our 37th Anniversary Season!
Our 37th Anniversary Season!


On May 25, 2020, the world witnessed the death of George Perry Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis officer, which served as a stark reminder that systemic racism and social injustice persist in every aspect of our society. The Newport Playhouse stands with like-minded people across the nation and around the world in demanding the changes long overdue.


Although traditionally theater has striven to be inclusive, we must do better. Today we pledge to do our part to end racism, oppression and social inequality and to reject bigotry and violence against African American and other oppressed peoples in our society. We ask all to: listen to the voice of the protestors; educate ourselves to racism and social injustice that have been with us since the inception of this nation; and to vote for the people who are committed to enacting laws and practices that end the unjustified use of deadly force and lead to substantive police reforms. We must all realize that racism is the public health crisis that threatens justice and democracy.

George Perry Floyd, Ahmad Arbery, Breonna Taylor! We pledge to continue to say their names so they are not forgotten and justice is served.


Greetings to all our valued customers and patrons.  For the last couple of months, we have all been facing many challenges as we navigate COVID-19 as a community.  While it is unclear when we will be able to reopen, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our season through August 31, 2020.  


As a small business greatly affected by these unprecedented circumstances, please assist us by retaining your tickets in the form of a patron credit that can be used towards any future show and will not expire.  Also, please consider purchasing a gift certificate or our Four-Play season ticket package.  

The health and safety of our patrons, actors, performers and staff is our first priority. It is our greatest privilege to entertain each and every one of you and to bring laughter and joy into your lives…and some good food too! 

We have received notes of support from many of you filling our hearts with encouragement and energy to keep pushing forward as we prepare for future performances and a sense of normalcy at The Playhouse. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.

Celebrating 37 Years of Award-Winning Entertainment


The Newport Playhouse was established in 1983 and has been a favorite with locals and tourists ever since we first opened our doors. We are a family-run business and we cater to your needs as if you were a member of our own family. Our air-conditioned, handicapped accessible theatre is conveniently located at the foot of the Newport Bridge and has plenty of parking. 


Our dinner theatre is unique...enjoy a great buffet--a wonderful play and a fun-filled cabaret. Our extensive, hearty buffet does not skimp on quality or selection. Everything is prepared on the premises. We offer a large variety of hot and cold foods, main entrees, side dishes, beverages and homemade desserts. A full liquor service is available either table side or at the comfortable bar. You will not be disappointed!


Our intimate theatre is just a short stroll from the dining room. There you will have reserved seating to enjoy some of the finest entertainment available. Professional actors will delight you with a wonderful play worthy of Broadway.


Then it is back to your original table...or you may enjoy the view from the bar...where the dining room has been transformed into a delightful Cabaret where our Company Members continue to entertain you with songs and laughter.





Stay Tuned for a reschedule date
