The Rockaway Theatre Company was founded in 1997 and performed several plays at the Park Place Seaport Theatre on Beach 116th Street in Rockaway Beach, Queens. When that theatre closed suddenly in September, 1997, members of the group approached the administrators at Fort Tilden for use of a room with a stage. They agreed and we performed our first play at Fort Tilden on Halloween Day, 1997. At that time, we used Building T-149, a room rented for receptions and parties, which had a raised stage.

After that first play, we began work on cleaning up the Post Theatre (building T-4), once an Army movie theatre and long unused.  We signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gateway National Recreation Area, giving us permission to perform live theatre there in exchange for restoring and renovating the building.
