An important message from Newport Theatre Arts Center 

Dear Friends, patrons and supporters of NTAC-

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis and in accordance with the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicating that all events where 50 or more people would be attending should be cancelled for the next 8 weeks, we have decided to postpone the opening of Neil Simon's Chapter Two from March 27 to May 29.  As such we will be postponing the 5th show of this season, Working, until further notice.


If you are a season ticket holder, there is no need for you to contact us for new tickets to Chapter Two. Please just use your ticket(s) for Working from this season to attend Chapter Two. With the postponement of our 5th show this season we would be extremely grateful if you would consider donating the cost of the fifth show to NTAC to help us cover our on-going expenses.  You will receive a tax donation letter. Instead of donating, we will also offer you a one-show credit for next year, meaning you would just be charged for a 4-show season next season. Please contact  publicity@ntaconline.com  with any questions or the box office at 949-631-0288.


Single ticket holders for Chapter Two may contact us at 949-631-0288 to choose your new performance date. If you are unable to attend Chapter Two during the new performance dates, again we would certainly appreciate your consideration in donating the tickets back to NTAC. If your preference is to have a voucher issued for a future production, please email publicity@ntaconline.com


If you have purchased individual tickets for Working, again we would certainly appreciate your consideration in donating the tickets back to NTAC. If your preference is to have a voucher issued for a future production, please email  publicity@ntaconline.com


The board of directors at the Newport Theatre Arts Center certainly appreciates your support and patience during this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update all of you through emails, social media and our website if there are any changes.


Thank you for your support and for your patience during this time!!!
