 It was Saturday Night Fever at the Disco as Long Islanders gathered at the Fifth Annual Gateway’s Disco Ball Gala to benefit The Gateway Playhouse Theater in Bellport, Long Island on Saturday, August 22nd, 2015.

During the cocktail hour I sat down and interviewed Director of Development and Public Relations Mr. Scot Allan who spoke about many of the accomplishments the Gateway Playhouse Theater has achieved.


" our community partners list has just grown and grown and grown. We have partnered with so many non-profits in our area and on Long Island. We are helping each other out…creating educational programs for people and the under-served kids also as well as proving our education in-house with our acting school. We are doing a huge expose on our new and improved acting school and we just are getting bigger and better. It’s so exciting!" revealed Scot.


In 1941, Harry C. Pomeran bought a 70-acre farm in Bellport with intentions of starting a hotel. The property was built in 1827 for Charles Osborn and purchased in 1884 by J. L. B. Mott. Mott hired Stanford White to design a new wing for the Mansion House. Harry and his wife Libby converted the property into a resort hotel for Christian Scientists spending the summer on Long Island. Their three children Sally, David and Ruth planted vegetables, washed dishes, waited tables, and milked Daisy, the family cow. In addition to Daisy, the property housed two hundred chickens as well as hay, corn, and other farm essentials. The windmill pumped the family’s water from a deep artesian well.
The Pomeran children entertained the guests by singing, performing skits and puppet shows and playing the piano. Local residents began lining up to see the performances, and Harry decided to make a small investment. Echoing Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney, the family thought, “Let’s put on a show!” In 1950, Daisy was evicted from the barn to make way for a production of The Taming of the Shrew, and the Gateway Playhouse had begun.


The Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County strives to enrich a wide range of communities with quality theatrical experiences through diverse arts, entertainment and educational programs. The Gateway Playhouse Theater endeavors to serve these communities in a fiscally responsible manner, to provide affordable resources to schools and non-profit organizations and to ensure the future of the theatrical arts in our region.
