The Green Room

About Us

The Green Room Community Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the quality of life in Catawba County and surrounding communities through the preservation and growth of the dramatic arts.


The heart of our organization lies in our volunteers, staff and Board of Directors. The life is sustained by our generous contributors, both private and corporate. The soul is the audience, providing support, encouragement and appreciation for the efforts of our volunteer actors and technical staff. Area dramatists and their supporters provide high-quality theatre at affordable admissions allowing everyone in the community it serves to attend.


Each season, The Green Room presents 6 large Main-Stage productions and 2 smaller Black Box productions, in addition to many other exciting presentations, including many youth shows and Shakespeare in the Park. The Green Room performs at its new home; The Old Post Office Playhouse, located at 10 South Main Avenue in downtown Newton.


Our Season usually provides at least two major Musicals, a Family Show, an all Youth Production and a Comedy or Drama. Other productions develop outside of the mainstage season as second-stage shows.


Activities for youth include 4 different programs:


The Green Room Community Theatre is an annual funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
