Since 2005 The Playhouse Project has enhanced the unique artistic heritage of the South Fork by bringing together artists, experts, and the public for exchanges involving community issues and the performing arts. Our Playhouse Project Master Classes, Performances, and Workshops are offered to the public, with emphasis on residents of the area. Our mission is to provide the highest level of arts enrichment, community engagement, and performance opportunities in surroundings that inspire all involved.


The Playhouse Project has offered a unique combination of music mentoring, community engagement on issues of arts and environment, and performance opportunities, without charge, to student and adult residents of the South Fork region of Long Island. Our programs take place during the school year, in order to serve the year-round population, rather than summer visitors. Founded in 2005 by Richard Brockman and Mirra Bank, the Playhouse Project was inspired by and named after the magnificent and acoustically resplendent Elizabethan-style theater in East Hampton, which has been in the Brockman family for 50 years. The Playhouse is rich in musical and theatrical tradition and has been maintained, since it was constructed in 1916, as a family residence and performance venue. The Playhouse Project has had an exceptional impact on the local community and has been supported by ticket sales, family foundations and numerous donors. Participants, teachers, journalists, donors and community members have felt and/or seen the empowerment and greater self-assurance arising from involvement in Playhouse Project music Master Classes, Concerts and Open Workshops.
