The Newton Theatre to celebrate its 4th anniversary
The Newton Theatre will celebrate its fourth anniversary on Friday, September 11 prior to the Jeffrey Gaines/Freedy Johnston show. Ticket holders are welcome to come early and join up for cake and a champagne toast. The party will take place from 7 p.m. until show time at 8 p.m.
The Newton Theatre opened in 1924 and operated as a movie theatre for decades. In 2011 the theatre, under new ownership, was fully renovated and reopened as a 605 seat performing arts center, becoming Sussex County’s premier entertainment venue. Luminaries as Judy Collins, Lyle Lovett, Kansas, Arlo Guthrie, Jon Anderson, and The Glenn Miller Orchestra have all graced the stage. Todd Rundgren was the premier performer at the all-new theatre with a sold out show on September 9, 2011.
The show that evening will be the first in a new series of American songwriters. Jeffrey Gaines and Freedy Johnston both emerged in the 1990s to critical acclaim. Jeffrey’s voice put him on the map as a top folk-rock artist, while gifted songwriter Freedy’s lyrics paint poignant, witty musical stories. Tickets for this performance are available at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com or by calling the Box Office at 973-383-3700.
The historic Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ.
