Announcing our 2022 Season


Due to significant damage the Newport Playhouse & Cabaret Restaurant sustained during Hurricane Ida in September 2021, we are continuing our partnership with The Wyndham Hotel and Johnny's Restaurant through June 2022.  We expect to reopen The Newport Playhouse on July 10, 2022 with Murder at Howard Johnsons! 


A very sincere thank you to The Wyndham and Jonny’s Restaurant for hosting The Newport Playhouse for our Spring 2022 season.  The Wyndham, located at 240 Aquidneck Ave Middletown, RI, will provide a buffet lunch by their onsite restaurant, Johnny’s. Preview the buffet menu here.   We will be performing The Carol Burnett Show and Cabaret which will feature hilarious skits from the famous show as well as our traditional cabaret with comedy skits, music and fun!

Buy tickets here or call 401-848-7529

We look forward to hosting you starting April 3rd, 2022 at The Wyndham with food, laughter, and entertainment and while it may not be in our cozy theater, we all know and love, it will always be…The Newport Playhouse way. Come and enjoy!

~Join us for the Newport Playhouse Experience~
Celebrating 38 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.
