FREE Players

The FREE Players is part of our Theatre Arts Day Program in our Old Bethpage Facility.  Rehearsals for the shows begin with four hours per week, expanding to over eight hours per week until the show is ready. The popularity of our shows required us to seek a larger theatre space, so we are now using the Commack Jewish Center & Theater Three in Port Jefferson, NY. Sets, costumes, lighting and sound equipment are provided by donations and many community and family members volunteer their time to make the costumes and sets, working along side our employees and individuals.

Young adults and teens supported by FREE are working with local businesses to decorate their storefronts for popular holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  The collaboration, which officially began on June 27, 2013, commenced with a celebratory display that ran through the Fourth of July weekend. The handmade artwork is not only helping to “brighten up” the Setauket community, but also allowing local merchants a chance to give back alongside those individuals supported by FREE.
