Hunnewell Moves On

Sarah Hunnewell began directing for the Hampton Theatre Company with “The Rainmaker” in 1998

Sarah Hunnewell, who has served as the executive director of the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue for more than 20 years, has announced that she is stepping down to turn the company over to new leadership and new ideas.

In 1990, Ms. Hunnewell was a practicing architect when she was asked by Jane Stanton, a stage director, to join the cast of A.R. Gurney’s “The Dining Room” at HTC. After several years of acting, she became a company board member, first turning her attention to the administrative side of the theater. 

She began directing for the company with “The Rainmaker” in 1998 and has since directed more than 30 productions. She has also been a member of the selection committee.
