Do you know how Sex got its name? Did you know Mawby wine has been to the North Pole? Do you want to know what the Leelanau County winemaker has planned for the next 50 years? Join Mawby for a sparkling evening of stories, both old and new, at the Bay Theatre in Suttons Bay on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 6 pm. Interlochen Public Radio news director Peter Payette will sit down to talk with with founder Larry Mawby and current owners Mike and Peter Laing.

The Bay Community Theatre in Suttons Bay announced in a press release that it has hired Graham Powers as its new general manager. Powers comes to “The Bay” from Fort Wayne, Indiana, bringing with him five years’ experience in both hospitality management and operations management, most recently within the Parkview Health System.

Join The Bay Theatre in Suttons Bay on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. for a screening of Galaxy Quest. During this special event, The Bay plans to launch its next fundraising campaign. This fundraiser will allow for The Bay to replace its 76-year-old seats with brand new, updated seats that still have that vintage aesthetic. These seats will be built and designed by Michigan’s own Irwin Seating Company. The one and only Leelanau County resident and actor Tim Allen will be your host. Allen will be onstage prior to the screening to answer questions, give away autographed merchandise, and reveal the sample of our new seats.
