Phase 6: Lobby Expansion

In Phase 6 of the Entertain the Future! Capital Campaign to Expand and Enhance the Newport Performing Arts Center, the lobby will be expanded to the north with a 612-square-foot addition, to provide a more adequate audience space during intermissions as well as accommodating community meetings and rehearsals. This new space will include enhanced seating, sound, lighting and multi-media systems.

The local architectural firm of Goebel and Capri have been retained to facilitate the design and create construction documents for this phase. A volunteer design and review committee has been formed consisting of performing artists, community members and OCCA staff.
