In 2011, after a major restoration, the historic Newton Theatre re-opened its doors as a 605 seat performing arts center in the heart of Sussex County, NJ. For more than two years it has presented a multitude of live performances with diverse programming, including world-renowned music acts, comedians, family shows and much more, in an intimate setting. Iconic performers such as Judy Collins, Lyle Lovett, Kansas, Arlo Guthrie, Jon Anderson, Todd Rundgren and The Glenn Miller Orchestra have all graced the stage.
The Newton Theatre has brought back a vitality to downtown Newton and Sussex County, as only the arts can. And with its historic charm and world-class entertainment it has become NJ Skylands’ premier entertainment venue.
The next phase of renovations are scheduled to include an upgrade of the theatre lobby, the expansion and modernization of the Men’s and Women’s restrooms, and the addition of a separate wheelchair accessible restroom.
The existing Women’s room has only two stalls with one sink, the Men’s room is just as lacking, and neither have disability access. After the renovation, the all new Women’s room will have six stalls with five sinks and the new Men’s room will have five stalls with three sinks. The Box office, Administrative office and storage room will all be reconfigured to allow space for these changes to happen. For the patrons, this will mean a more spacious lobby and the alleviation of long lines, which will make everyone’s experience more enjoyable!
With these goals in mind we are seeking your help to fund this project.
