In anticipation of being reopened by the Governor, The Newberry Opera House is excitedly planning on raising the curtain on the 23rd season. With fresh, new programming as well as some tried and true favorites, The Newberry Opera House is ready to come back stronger than ever from the intermission brought on by COVID-19 and to bring you another quality season with a variety of shows and experiences for everyone. Tickets for the August through October shows will go on sale early to the public on Wednesday, July 1 at 10:00 A.M. Please note: The entire 2020-21 Season will go on-sale to the public Monday, August 10 at 10:00 A.M. (Become a donor to buy starting as early as August 3 based on your giving level.)
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Newberry Opera House capacity will be reduced through October, which means, tickets are going to sell out very quickly. Try something new, take advantage of this intimate venue, and invest in a once in a life-time experience at the historic Newberry Opera House.
One of the shows kicking off the 2020-21 Season is “The Party Band of the South” Opera House alums The Swingin’ Medallions performing their hits “Hey, Hey, Baby”, “Double Shot (Of my Baby’s Love)”, and “She Drives Me Out of My Mind”. Other notable headliners for the first three months of the season include one of the most respected singer/songwriters in the Country music world Robert Earl Keen, 2016 ACM “New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year” nominee Parmalee, SC native Reggie Deas of Deas Guyz, multi-media show, The Harlem 100 Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, The Electric Light Orchestra Experience – 50th Anniversary Tribute, Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King, and Multi-Grammy® winner Ricky Skaggs, as well as many other great performances.
Make sure not to miss Southern gospel singer and noted tenor Ernie Hasse + Signature Sound, as well as The Tams & The 14K Gold Band best known for the 1968 Platinum hit “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy.” October is rounded out by award-winning comedian Jeanne Robertson who is an expert in humor, whether regaling audiences with her experience as a 6’2” Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant or outlining the steps to developing a sense of humor.
