The Roanoke Rapids Theatre has slated a taste of the venue’s 2018 Fall Entertainment Series, with more big events to come. Tickets for many of the events will go on sale August 10.

A diverse range of artists and special events will be featured, beginning Saturday, September 15 with a soft opening to welcome the community back inside the landmark entertainment destination located off Interstate 95 in Roanoke Rapids at Exit 171.  

The official Grand Opening ceremony is set for Saturday, November 10, and will be headlined by the Charlie Daniel’s Band with a special Veteran’s Day salute to the military.

“The entertainment staff has strived to book a broad and diverse range of talent to showcase this marvelous entertainment destination,” said Jack Glasure, spokesperson for the new owners, Tom and Evon McLean, who closed on the purchase of the theatre less than two weeks ago. “They want to offer something for everyone with amazing performances and festivals encompassing country, rock, blues, beach, jazz and R&B, as well as a variety of performing art shows such as plays, cirque, magic, comedy, murder mystery dinners and more.”  

The Roanoke Rapids Theatre plans to open every day at 9 a.m., except Sunday at 11 a.m., and the restaurant will be open to serve lunch and dinner during operating hours following the Grand Opening November 10.  


A brand-new sports lounge will adjoin the restaurant, with multiple televisions broadcasting big games like Monday Night Football.  

Every weekday afternoon the venue will offer Live After Five specials from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  

On Wednesday evenings, the venue will feature beach music on the main stage; and on Fridays, when a touring act has not been booked, a variety of live and recorded music will be showcased for Club Nite, featuring rock, country, R&B or pop.   

Corporate sponsorship packages for all shows are available, providing interested companies with numerous levels of advertisement, promotion and hospitality.  In addition, the entire venue can be booked for private events.
