The modern facility at Bellport, is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped rustic exterior creates a unique theater going experience that is unparalleled on Long Island. The history and evolution of the Playhouse could be a movie in the making, with its many transitions, variety of productions, and a long list of colorful characters from on stage and off. It would be a movie about how three generations of a single family have fashioned what was once a farm on eastern Long Island into one of the top ten summer theaters in the nation.
