The Executive Committee of the Bay Street Board of Trustees has announced a $100,000 Challenge Grant in support of the 2013 Main Stage season and the new vision for the future of Bay Street. Proceeds raised from patrons, subscribers, donors, volunteers and the community through March 15, 2013, will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $100,000 by the Executive Committee of the Bay Street Board of Trustees. Bay Street is a 501 3c not for profit so all donations are tax deductible.
"This is an amazing opportunity for the theatre and community," says Mitchell. "Last year we heard the community say that they wanted us to stay. Now we hope everyone will help us by purchasing a subscription by March 15th, filling seats this summer, and getting the word out that we have a very limited time to match this wonderful challenge. March 15th is around the corner!"

" star Megan Hilty
