Would You Like to See Bay Street Theatre Relocate to Southampton Village?

Through the link provided in the blog, you can send a message to the Board of Directors of the Bay Street Theater inviting them to build a new and affordable theater in Southampton Village.

For those people who are passionate about providing an affordable home for the , I created a petition for you to sign called:  Help Bring Bay Street Theatre to The Parrish on Jobs Lane.

Background:  Southampton Village has offered an affordable alternative for Bay Street Theatre in a beautiful historic home in the Samuel L. Parrish building on Jobs Lane. I started this petition because I care deeply about the future of Bay Street and live theater on the East End and because I believe this is a very important issue for us all. I’ve put it on my blog because I felt many people feel the same way as I do and would be willing to sign onto a petition (below, which will be sent to the Board of Directors of the Bay Street Theatre.

Objective:  I’m trying to collect 1,000 signature, and I could really use your help. Like the residents of Sag Harbor Village, we hope that Bay Street finds a solution to the financial challenges that lie just ahead. And again, like Sag Harbor residents, we’d hate to see them leave Sag Harbor if that is their dream and their destiny. But we also want to let their Board of Directors know that we’re here with open arms and that we welcome them to our beautiful village and facility on Jobs Lane if they believe it is as well suited to their future as we do.

It’ll just take a minute!

How you can help:  Sign the petition through the link above. It's easy to do. Once you’re done, ask your friends to sign the petition as well. You'll receive a thank you email and through it you can send an invitation to friends.

Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word. Let’s get the word to Bay Street from the “residents” of our village and town and from those who want to see great theater thrive on the East End.

Thank you for your support!

We've collected nearly 650 signatures from area residents who said that they would love to see Bay Street Theatre in Southampton Village. I think that we can honestly say "Mission Accomplished!" as well as thanks to everyone who supported this petition initiative. I'll give everyone an update and more exciting news in the coming week. Thank you again for the tremendous outpouring of support!
