(WADK 1540AM, By The Business of Newport County)

Thanks to WADK 1540AM, Talk of the Town’s Bruce Newbury, and Newport County Chamber of Commerce‘s Erin Donovan-Boyle for hosting this discussion with boardmember Tom Hockaday on the economic impact of the Newport Opera House Theater & Performing Arts Center. Along with our core missions to serve as a cultural asset and educational catalyst, year-round the Opera House Theater will serve as an economic driver for Newport and Southern New England, with a projected $15,000 spent per performance by patrons at local businesses, and an estimated $1.6 million in local impact per year in its first year of operations.
