Bay Street Theater To Host Discussion With Co-Authors Julie Andrews & Emma Walton Hamilton

Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor offers a unique opportunity to see the legendary Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton. They will discuss their latest collaborative book, “Waiting In The Wings,” in a session moderated by Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. This exclusive event will occur on Sunday, April 28, at 3 PM.

Pre-autographed copies will be sold with a seat purchase. If any remain, they will be sold in the lobby following the event. Books are being provided in partnership with BookHampton, Sag Harbor.

“Waiting In The Wings” is written by the beloved Golden Globe, Emmy, and Oscar winner Julie Andrews and her award-winning writer, producer, and arts educator daughter Emma Walton Hamilton, a Bay Street Theater co-founder. Together, they have co-authored more than thirty bestselling children’s books. The book is published by the Little, Brown Books for Young Readers imprint and illustrated by internationally recognized artist EG Keller.

Andrews and Walton Hamilton have written a charming celebration of the arts, born from a true story in “Waiting In The Wings.” One spring, outside the Bay Street Theater, a family of ducks nested and hatched in a nearby planter and paraded down to the water while theater staff looked on. As co-founder of the theater, Emma was front and center that day. “Waiting In The Wings” takes that inspiration to depict a fun, kid-friendly story that highlights the wonders of theater.

“I’m thrilled to be moderating this incredible true story that took place at Bay Street, the theater that Emma co-founded. It seems that, like the ducks, everything has come full circle with this book launch being held at Bay Street,” said Tracy Mitchell.

Tickets are $29.99 for a child’s seat (with no book) and $59.99 for an adult seat, including a pre-autographed copy of the book. Visit
