Critically acclaimed architecture firm Roger Ferris + Partners has been selected to design Bay Street Theater's first purpose-built home. The new venue will boast several different areas that will be utilized for public spaces, the evolution of projects, and education facilities.

"This has been a lifelong dream for both the founders of Bay Street theater and myself as the current Executive Director," Tracy Mitchell said. "It will provide not only the space for creative growth but will ensure Bay Street's future and legacy with a permanent home."

"As Artistic Director, I know this gorgeous new facility will enable Bay Street to continue the exciting artistic growth we have been experiencing over the past few years," Scott Schwartz noted. "It will make the company an even more versatile home for an ever-growing family of new and established voices in the theater and will allow us to offer expanded educational programming for both children and adults in our community. We could not be more excited."

Bay Street's new home will include a mainstage theater that will provide an intimate space to view original productions and programming, as well as areas for the non-profit professional theater's year-round educational programs for children and adults, new work development, special events, a shop and scenery storage, and professional development initiatives.

"We are very excited to be part of this collective endeavor to design a new home for this legendary theater and to situate it on a site that will be transformative for the village of Sag Harbor," Architect Roger Ferris shared.

To bring the project to fruition, a separate non-profit organization, Friends of Bay Street Theater, has been established to oversee the site's development, including land acquisition, financing, fundraising, and design. "Roger Ferris and his team designed an architecturally beautiful building that fits into the character of Sag Harbor Village and provides great public access to Steinbeck Park and the water," said Friends of Bay Street Theater Chairman and Founder Adam Potter. "We hope to break ground later this year and anticipate completion in 2023."
