In 1960, Playcrafters Theatre Company was founded with a mission to promote the theatrical arts and the production of plays by non-professionals. Today we are one of the oldest not-for-profit community theatre groups on Long Island. Since our inception, we continually strive to present the very best amateur theatre, encouraging interest and participation in the performing arts throughout the community In 1965, we established a scholarship fund for graduating seniors of Bellport High School. To date, Playcrafters  Theatre Company has awarded over $60,000 in scholarships to students pursuing their education in the arts.

In 2012 Playcrafters Theatre Company received a proposal from the Boys and Girls Club of Bellport offering to partner with them in a joint effort. In exchange for granting Playcrafters  Theatre Company  access to their multi-purpose room, The Boys and Girls Club would receive our expertise and resources in converting the space into a viable theatre for the performing arts. In accepting this proposal, we addressed some of our most urgent needs, and we provided something we have longed for during much of our 50 year history -- a proper home to call our own.

With the support of our community, Playcrafters Theatre Company continues its history of producing high quality theatre productions in the spring and fall in their new theatre space at the Boys & GIrls Club of Bellport, 471 Atlantic Ave., Bellport, NY.
