We are now the proud owners of a warehouse building at 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill, NY (just west of the Uncle Sam Bridge) and are on our way to convert it into a small theater space of our own called the Bridge Street Theatre. Click here to view our new Bridge Street Theatre web site.
We have converted the future lobby in the Speakeasy and are presenting all kinds of performances there, most every weekend. Check out the Bridge Street Theatre website for all the details.
The space was originally a brewing company, then a factory which produced Curtron curtains for freezers, and most recently a book distributing operation. Here's where the stage will be.
Interior restructuring should be completed next year and anyone who'd like to pitch in to help will be more than welcome! We’re eventually hoping to present seasons of our own, special engagements by artists from far-flung locations whose work we admire, as well as working extensively with students from the Catskill Unified School District (the building backs up on the parking lot for Catskill High School) to give them practical, hands-on experience in all phases of performance and production. Aiming for an inaugural full season by the year 2015, which we plan to dedicate to the life and work of Oakley Hall III and the legendary Lexington Conservatory Theatre which operated here in Greene County from 1976-1980.
We definitely hope the theatre will play a large part in the revitalization effort of the Village of Catskill, and of the area west of the bridge in particular, and will be a boon to area theater-goers, local businesses, and to other small troupes in the Hudson Valley and environs without permanent performance spaces of their own.
