Studio Theatre of Long Island

Two Brand New Theatre's on Long Island - Manes Studio Theatre in Lindenhurst  and  Studio Theatre East in East Islip

Studio Theatre is a tax exempt 501c3 not for profit organization.

We are one of Long Island’s oldest and finest theaters, and have been in operation for more than 50 years. We hope that Studio Theatre will run for another 50 years, but WE NEED YOUR HELP.

In addition to ticket sales, your tax deductible donations help us to present first rate theatre for a discerning audience.

  • “Benefactor Level” for donations over $250
  • “Silver Sponsor” – $1000+ (includes listing in our Playbill for one full season, plus on the Studio Theatre web site, AND VIP tickets)
  • “Gold Sponsor” – $2500+ (includes all of the above, a quarter page ad in our Playbill AND recognition from the stage at performances)

The Gary Scott Milenko Memorial Fund

In honoring the Milenko family’s request, Studio Theatre of Long Island is pleased to establish a fund in memory of one of our most cherished theatre family members. Sadly, Gary’s passing leaves a void in the hearts of the Long Island Theatre Community. His spirit will not be forgotten.  The Gary Scott Milenko Memorial Fund will be established at Studio Theatre to begin a scholarship fund in his name.


This memorial fund will help to make theater accessible to student performers.  We want to make our theatre classes affordable to everyone on Long Island, regardless of their economic background. Additionally, Gary expressed his excitement in seeing the renovation and expansion of Studio Theatre. We will utilize a portion of the funds towards our project and intend to have a dedication in his name, which will always be remembered here at Studio Theatre. We will miss him always.

As we continue our expansion and renovation, here at the new Studio Theatre, we intend to move forward with the installation of an elevator in the building.  Expected elevator installation costs are estimated to be approximately $120,000. We are excited to begin to see the transformation of the entire building unfold.                  (click here to donate)

As our thank you for supporting the arts on Long Island, Patrons and Benefactors will receive a Studio Theatre logo gift and name recognition in our Playbill for a full season.

Thank you for championing high quality theatre and the arts – see you at the show.
