Welcome to Bridge Street Theatre
Welcome to Bridge Street Theatre, a new performing arts venue in Catskill, NY.
Bridge Street Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit corporation which purchased the factory building at 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill, NY in late 2013. We have now converted the building into a 84-seat theatre which houses our own theatre productions. It will also be available to other theatres and performing arts groups, and because of its location adjacent to Catskill High School, will be able to provide theatrical opportunities for high school and middle school students.
We received a grant from New York State's Homes and Community Renewal to convert our black-box Raw Space into a fully functioning 84 seat proscenium theatre, and this September we presented our first production in the new theatre, THE TAVERN. We've also converted the lobby of the theatre into the Speakeasy where we've already presented over 40 events -- theatre, music, magic and more -- and outfitted our Big Room into an exhibition space where we showcased a monumental balloon sculpture called AVIARY (reimagined) and Big Works in the Big Room.

On this website you'll find details of our past and future events, how we are using our 12,000 square foot space to create a state-or-the-art theatre, before and after photos which show the building the way was and photos and renderings of what it is now and will be when our conversion is complete this year, and a description of the many ways you can help us make it a reality. Please consider making donations of time or money - we really need your support to keep moving forward. Click here for details

Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and by Public Funds from the Greene County Legislature through the Cultural Fund administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
