Broadway Comes to Southampton College

Pekka Paavonpera (

Southampton, N.Y.  Some of the current stars of Broadway will be appearing at Southampton College later this month in a musical presentation being tipped to become a runaway success.

The Southampton College Writers Conference will be hosting “Caraboo” at the College’s Avram Theatre on Monday, July 25th at 8 pm.

Caraboo is billed as a “ true fairy tale” adapted from the book written by Marsha Norman with lyrics by Beth Blatt and music by Jenny Giering.

The outstanding cast includes Tony nominated Celia Keenan Bolger (Spelling Bee) who will be singing the lead, Caraboo, and Joe Cassidy (currently starring in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) who will be singing the role of Eyenesso.

Caraboo has just recently been chosen for the National Alliance of Music Theatres presentations for next year, a key indicator of a show on the move.

Tickets are $45.00 (festival seating) and can be reserved by calling 631-287-8175.
