Looking Ahead to 2017

We've got great entertainment planned.


The Fantasticks

Director Stephan set this classic musical in the piano lounge of a French Bistro, with Maestro Milo Graamans on the 88, lounge lizard El Gallo performing the floor show, a Mute Maitre d, kitchen staff as the players/villains, and the young couple Matt and Luisa celebrating the giri's 16th birthday with along with the two fathers. The result was an enchanting interpretation of this timeless fable of love that charmed Newport audiences in nine consecutive sold out shows. Congratulations cast and crew for a show that was truly FANTASTICK!

Porthole Players Annual Meeting

Another fabulous year in theatre has come to a close that means it's time for everyone's favorite event, the Annual Meeting! It's taco night, and this year it will be a little later in January on Saturday the 28th, 6:00 pm at the Newport Presbyterian church. A full taco bar with beef, chicken, and beans will be tempting the tastebuds of every palate. If that isn't enough, there will be a variety of delectable salsas and a performance from "Really Rosie," Porthole's spring musical! We've cooked up both food and fun for this evening of thespian delights!

Really Rosie

From the brilliant minds of Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Carole King, Really Rosie is a jewel for children and adults.

Rosie, the sassiest kid on her block of Brooklyn's Avenue P, entertains herself and her friends by acting out show biz fantasies, notably directing and starring in an Oscar winning movie.

"There is such juicy vitality, such insouciant grace, such frolicking exploration of the waist high jungle of childhood.... You will regret not being able to wrap up a large chunk of the proceedings and take them home with you." - New York Magazine
