The Newberry Opera House is your home and a beacon for the Midlands.

The Newberry Opera House is home to fabulous programming, special events, and one-of-a-kind experiences; but we can't do it without your support! 

We are also committed to continuing our many educational and community access programs like Ticket Scholarships, School Shows, STEAM Camps, and Free Community Concerts. Your generosity not only supports a critical community asset, but it also helps us create strong partnerships with area community organizations, supports our local educators and their students, and makes the arts accessible to ALL residents of the City of Newberry and beyond. Many of these programs are free for children and families across the region thanks to your support.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Newberry Opera House. With your support, we will move forward and continue to be a gathering place for all and deliver on our mission of enhancing the economic and cultural development of Newberry County and the Midlands through the window of the arts, in concert with educational opportunities for all.
