SIP & SING Streams From Bay Street Theater and iHeartRadio Beginning This Week

The weekly event is hosted by Broadway star Kyle Barisich.

Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts is pleased to announce a partnership with Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos' Milojo Productions to present its online virtual sing-along, Sip & Sing, available for live streaming on iHeartRadioBroadway.com and the iHeartRadio Broadway YouTube Channel beginning Friday, April 23. The weekly sing-along series takes place via Zoom on Fridays at 5 p.m. EDT and is hosted by Broadway star Kyle Barisich, alongside a different star of the Broadway and Bay Street stage each week. The program is free to attend, and advanced registration is required.

Created by Executive Producer Tracy Mitchell, the Sip & Sing virtual sing-along began in March 2020 as part of Bay Street Theater's online programming platform, and quickly grew to become the East End's favorite online interactive event ... the only one of its kind anywhere. The series features live weekly performances from some of the most talented singers and performers that have graced Bay Street's stage over the past 30 years, performing Broadway show tunes, favorites from the Great American Songbook and holiday classics ... all with lyrics so you can sing-a-long.

Kyle Barisich is a Southampton local and native of Los Gatos, California, who is best known for playing the role of Raoul in the 25th Anniversary Broadway cast of The Phantom Of The Opera, and was the first actor of Hispanic heritage to do so. He also played the role for the Los Angeles and San Francisco engagements of the long-running national tour. Kyle has been seen numerous times at Bay Street Theater, most recently playing Magaldi in Evita and appearing in My Fair Lady. He also took part in early workshops of Scott Schwartz's production of The Prince Of Egypt.
