It's not a simple answer. 

According to Equity's Seasonal Showcase Code there is a formula that is used based on each individual theatre's gross income and the number of AEA members on the show.  It's explained in better detail on page 2 of the code.  If you don't have a copy of the code you can find it on Equity's website under Agreements - Codes. 

Your best bet would to be to call Equity directly and ask for the minimum with the specific theatre.

You really need to ask Equity about this.

But my understanding from other contracts is that if you are non-Equity, the Equity rules do not apply to you (payment requirements, working hours and rules).  So if Equity allows for a non-Equity SM on the code the theatre is not required to pay you the minimum stipend that is due to Equity members.

Please someone else correct me if I am wrong.

Your first instinct is right on the mark.
Call Equity.
They are paid to know the answers.
