#98 - Catch a Show at Star Playhouse

Commack's resident theater offers Broadway-caliber performances for a fraction of the cost.

The performing arts can be many things: funny, whimsical, dramatic, thought-provoking, heartbreaking. They can also be pretty expensive. Thankfully, Commack's own offers top-notch performances at half the price you would pay to see a Broadway (or even Off-Broadway) show.

For those who can't afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a night out, or simply don't feel like hopping on the LIRR and trekking into the city to be entertained, the playhouse is right here in our backyard.

Originally created 28 years ago as the Suffolk Y Theatre, the Star Playhouse at the has transcended the typical community theater stigma to become one of Long Island's premiere independent theaters. A community of more than 20 members work tirelessly to hire the perfect director, choreographer, and musical directors to make each production shine. The actors—all volunteers—are hand-chosen for each role, and keep audiences coming back for more.

Recently having undergone an extensive renovation with new curtains, seats, carpeting and even a new ceiling, Star Playhouse is thriving and better than ever.

Their most recent production, the zany Broadway play "," recieved rave reviews. Up next: "say It With Music" in March and "Oliver!" in May.

The theater also offers discounts for seniors, students and groups of 10 or more.

What are you waiting for? Order tickets for your next night out by calling the Box Office at (631)462-9800 x 136.
