The East End Fringe Festival returns to Vail-Leavitt Music Hall Feb. 2 to launch its second season with the East End Premiere of “Play Time”, the engaging documentary on Long Island theater featuring over 100 Long Island performers and participants. 

Turning the camera on actors, directors, crew and fans, filmmaker Anthony DiFranco pulls back the curtain for a closer look at what brings theater to life on Long Island. Adding performance highlights and visits to dozens of theaters from Bay Street to the Vail-Leavitt, Theater Three and beyond, “Play Time” transports the audience from backstage to on-stage and out to the towns and communities that enthusiastically support local theater. 

Following “Play Time,” Director Anthony DiFranco will join area theater makers Kate Mueth, Andrew Botsford, Bob Kaplan and East End Fringe Festival’s Debbie Slevin on stage for an enlightening ‘Theater Talk.’

Following the successful inaugural season, this is the first of several special events scheduled for East End Fringe Festival’s 2018 season.  For more information, visit

“Play Time” will be shown at the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, 18 Peconic Avenue, Riverhead on Friday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
