Event Details

SHIRLEY ROMAINE is an accomplished actress, television personality, creator and performer of her own multi media arts and theater programs and arts activivist.  She brings to her current work many years of experience on and off Broadway and on daytime and prime time television.

A familiar face on Long Island television, Shirley is currently celebrating her 25th year as host/producer of Artscene on Long Island, Cablevision's only regularly scheduled program on the arts.  She has brought to the Long Island viewing audience artists of all disciplines: painters, musicians, poets, dancers, film makers, photographers, puppeteers and more, running the gambit from sculptor Louise Nevelson to Richie Haven, Andrea Marcovicci, Tom Paxton, Isabella Rossellini, the Eglevsky ballet to Olympic skater Sarah Hughes.  Regularly featured on Artscene are the current shows at the Nassau County Museum of Art, The Heckscher Museum of Art, the Cinema Arts Centre and the Great Neck Arts Center.

Using her dramatic and other skills, Shirley has created several series of programs which she performs at museums, arts centers, colleges, libraries and other venues on Long Island and the metropolitan area.  Among them are: All the World's a Stage, 20 programs about playwrights and plays, Poet in the Gallery, incorporating visual art, poetry and music.  Many of these have been commissioned by museums.  She also presents Travel the World With the Romaines, a series of 10 programs presented with her husband Stanley, a retired publisher.  These include colorful slides, a lively discussion and music of the many countries they have visited.

Shirley's commitment to the arts on Long Island has deepened during the past five decades, not only as a performer, but as an arts activist.  She is co-chair of the Cinema Arts Centre, a vice president of The Great Neck Arts Center, co-president of the North Shore Community Arts Council and Coordinator of Performing Arts for the Great Neck Adult Program.  Artscene on Long Island has brought her into contact with artist, performing arts groups and institutions that enrich the quality of life on the Island.  She is determined to see them flourish.  Her passion for the arts and insights into their cultural impact make her one of Long Island's strongest voices for the the arts community.
