Twenty years ago the board of director of the Newport Theatre Guild formed a task force and changed them with developing mission goals and objectives for the Guild. The work of the task force was formally adopted by the board and has remained without change for two decades.
The Newport Theatre Guild was established to create in Cocke County a complete cultural arts organization to foster interest and participation in creative expression. The Guild is committed to involving youth and adults in the adventure of the artistic world.
