The Newport Playhouse presents Paul Elliott’s gentle comedy “Exit Laughing” on April 10, 2018.  The show features three lifelong, bridge-playing friends in the south dealing with a crisis that turns humorously uplifting.  They know how to push each others buttons but clearly are the happiest when they are together.  This unique dinner theatre is a favorite for locals and visitors since 1983.  Enjoy a great buffet with a wide variety of salads, hot & cold entrees, desserts, beverage.  All food is prepared on the premise and enjoyed in the main dining room.  After dining, take your reserved seats in the theater.  After the Play, return to the dining room for the Cabaret Show.  This will be a fun day filled with great food and entertainment.  Trip cost is $94 per person.  Trip sign up date is February 2, 2018.

We are happy to offer a new Qigong class for nine weeks, beginning on March 1 and running through April 26. Join Marcy Hickey on Thursday mornings, from 8:45 – 9:45 am. Qigong is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm, meditative state of mind. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi, translated as life energy. Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise and relaxation, and preventive medicine. A trial class was very well-received.  Class registrations begin on February 6 for Enfield residents, February 13 for non-residents and will be accepted through February 23. The nine-week class fees are $36 for Enfield residents and $45 others. We hope to have you with us!
