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


Now under new leadership, Studio Theatre is a 501(c)3 not for profit company that has been committed to providing quality theatre to its patrons for more than 50 years.

Studio Theatre also provides excellence in education through our Youth Theatre Program. We maintain a “no child left behind” policy supported by our “Gary Milenko Scholarship Fund” which provides funding for children of economically disadvantaged families. 

Studio Theatre remains committed to providing diversity in theatre while striving for high production and artistic values now and in the future. 

The Gary Milenko Scholarship Fund


This scholarship fund established in 2020 after Gary's tragic passing, will help to make theater accessible to ALL children who aspire to be one of our young actors in Studio's Youth Theatre Program.  

The scholarships are awarded to children who come from families with financial or personal hardships and who otherwise could not afford the gift of a theatrical education.

Studio Theatre maintains a "no child left behind" standpoint which is supported by this fund.

The Studio Theatre 2021 Building Fund

Want to join Studio Theatre in making a difference?  If you take a peak inside the Manes Studio Theatre in Lindenhurst, you will see a magical transformation happening as we continue building our new theatre and performing arts venue. 
The ground floor will now be the home to our theatre, box office, and "Rick's Cafe Americain" offering beer, wine, custom crafted lattes and coffees, as well as new bathrooms and elegant lobby.  Our entire facility is being built fully ADA compliant and handicap accessible. Given the size and scope of this project, any donation to offset the significant costs associated with this incredible, and massive project would be greatly appreciated. Whether you choose to donate a small amount or become a sponsor, we will be very grateful and appreciative. Together, the Manes Studio Theatre of Long Island will continue to be one of the finest theatre's on Long Island.
