The Bay Theatre To Close For Remainder Of Holiday Season

Nov. 16, 2020


The holiday lights are up at The Bay Theatre in Suttons Bay, thanks to a sunny afternoon and the help of volunteers.

But the theatre is to remain closed for the rest of 2020, according to an announcement released today by its board of directors. "With the dramatic rise of COVID-19 in Leelanau County and the recent order from the Michigan Department of Health, the Bay Community Theatre has decided to suspend operations at The Bay Theatre beginning Wednesday, November 18, 2020 through the Holiday Season," it states.

"We are disappointed to announce this temporary closing and look forward to reopening our doors after the New Year.  We so appreciate the support, understanding and generosity of the community...see you at “The Bay” in 2021!"

Note that the nonprofit remains an active part of the community with an online “Beyond The Bay” film discussion series available every other week during the holiday season via YouTube Live Stream.
