spring is here


Five Towns College Theatre Department Presents
A New Production of Rogers & Hart’s Lost Classic
“Spring Is Here”

 Fabulous Fundraiser for New York’s
The Theatre Museum
at Dix Hills Performing Arts Center, Monday, May 4

Long-dormant Broadway flower will blossom anew on
 Long Island in a unique performance, after original script and score are found in vault




DIX HILLS, NY,  –  Talk about your revivals… the missing Broadway script, including the long-lost score of the 1929 Rogers and Hart’ musical Spring Is Here was recently unearthed in a Hollywood archive among the material used in the making of the 1930 film version -- also lost to the ages. Now, The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center, Five Towns College’s award-winning Theatre Department, and a handful of talented Broadway professionals will present Spring is Here in an historic one-night-only workshop ensemble performance. A mixture of students and Broadway talent will pay homage to Broadway’s greatest writing
pair by performing a play that has not been staged in more than
75 years.

This personal quest began when Aaron Gandy (conductor for Lion King on Broadway, casting agent for Disney and musicologist) became interested in resurrecting old Broadway shows that had yet to be revived.  He felt that the 1929 Rogers and Hart musical, Spring is Here would be an excellent candidate. But when Gandy inquired to Mary Rogers (daughter of Richard Rogers) and the Rogers and Hammerstein Library about the work, he learned that the original Broadway script and orchestration had been lost.  Aaron then went to the archive vault for the movie company that produced the 1930 film version of Spring is Here. His plan was to use the movie score and script to archeologically rebuild the Broadway show. To his great surprise, while searching through the cob web and dust-covered box of original film scripts and direction materials, he found the long-lost original script and score of the Broadway show.

Gandy then had the fragile paper work copied and spoke to TONY, OSCAR (All That Jazz) and EMMY(Death of a Salesman) winner Tony Walton about modernizing the script and directing the new workshop version. Tony, Aaron and Five Towns College Theatre Department Director Jared Herskowitz met at the Theatre Museum Awards Ceremony, where Five Towns won the award for Excellence In Theatre Education. The two asked Five Towns to work with their team, including eight Broadway actors to produce a workshop encore concert version of the play.  Five Town staff took on the bulk of the creative work.  Its theatre students will be seen in the ensemble and in smaller roles.

With that Manhattan meeting, the Dix Hills Performing Arts Center was selected as the site for the one night only performance on May 4.  Because Broadway theaters are dark only on Monday, this date gives the professional actors the opportunity to play Dix Hills as a benefit performance for The Theatre Museum of NYC. 

For more information on this historic presentation for both theater and music lovers, please visit 
or call the Center’s Box Office at (631) 656-2148.
