Our Mission

Newport Drama Boosters
is the booster organization supporting the
Newport High School Drama and Technical Theater

Mission Statement

The mission of the Newport Drama Boosters is to provide student members of the school drama and technical theater program with opportunities to perform, compete, improve their skills as actors, team members and crew, and expand their appreciation of the many facets of theater.



In support of this mission, Newport Drama Boosters raises funds to provide for Drama and Tech class needs that exceed the school budget, volunteer time and talents to the Newport Drama Department
and safeguard the assets and well-being of the organization.

Money raised by Newport Drama Boosters lowers the fee amount students pay for transportation, uniforms, chaperones and to cover other expenses. 
We also enable students to gain exposure to more field trips, performances, and education from arts industry professionals.

Specific uses of funds raised may include, but are not be limited to:

  • Transportation to festivals, competitions, and performances
  • Guest performances, workshops and field trips
  • Purchase of costumes and props
  • Drama Camp
  • Shakespeare Festival Field Trip
  • Financial aid for Drama/Tech students
