Playcrafters prides itself on being "Long Island's friendliest community theatre." Founded in 1960 with a mission to promote theatrical arts and the productions of plays by non-professionals in the community, today we are one of the oldest not-for-profit community theatre groups on Long Island. We provide an outlet for local talent and reasonably priced productions to our community. We look forward to seeing you!

Farewell to our friend Nick Sanna

Playcrafters has learned that Nick Sanna passed away of a heart attack a couple of months ago. We fondly remember him as the Major General in our 2002 production of Pirates of Penzance. Nick was a carpenter by trade and helped to build some of our sets. He had relocated to upstate New York some years ago. A memorial is planned for July 22, 2023. More information to follow.
