An anonymous donor has promised a gift of $300,000 to the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor if it can raise matching funds.
The gift was in response to the theater’s announcement that Scott Schwartz will be the new artistic director for the 2014 season.
The gift will launch the theater’s fall matching funds campaign. Tax-deductible donations can be made by clicking the “Donate Now” icon on the baystreet.org Web site or through the box office.
Guild Hall’s Labor Day weekend schedule is full again this year, with a number of performances, screenings, and concerts.
Tonight, “County of Kings: A Stage Memoir by Lemon Andersen” will be presented by the author, who is also a poet and performance artist. It is directed by Elise Thoron. The 8 p.m. performance costs $30, $28 for museum members. Free rush tickets are available for students.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
