About The MPCCF:
The Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation was
founded in 1999 to save the historic Montauk Playhouse and
create a vibrant home for arts, education, athletics and
much needed community and human services began. The Montauk
Playhouse has now been beautifully restored, and facilities
and services within half of the structure have been up and
running since 2006. The Playhouse now provides a child day
care center, a senior nutrition center, an adult day care
center, a high-school regulation-sized gymnasium, a fitness
center and a physical therapy practice.
Plans are currently underway for a full-scale, fully
299-seat performing arts center, an aquatics center with lap
and recreation pools, multi-use community rooms and lounges
and a year-round education program for youth and adults.
