2017 Peter Marbury Scholarship Winners Announced

Jul 17, 2017 1:25 PM

Each year, the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue selects one or more East End students who have shown outstanding commitment to the theater arts, and who plan to further their theater education after graduation, to be recipients of the Peter Marbury Scholarship.

Rose Kelly, from Bridgehampton, is among the 2017 awardees. Ms. Kelly, a graduate from Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School in Riverhead, will be studying dance at Mercyhurst University in Pennsylvania.

She and the other two recipients, Riverhead High School student Ella Baldwin from Aquebogue, and Jamie Baio from Sayville High School, have been awarded a total of $2,500 dollars to use toward their college expenses. In the fall, Ms. Baldwin will attend Bard College to study theater, and Ms. Baio chose Wagner College on Staten Island, where she will major in musical theater.

Peter Marbury, an artist as well as the longtime set designer and builder for Hampton Theatre Company, died in a motorcycle accident in 2009. The scholarship was designed to honor his memory.

Each applicant was required to write a brief statement that detailed how theater had impacted their life so far, and how they plan to continue their theater education in the future, along with two letters of recommendation.

The scholarship is funded through concession sales at the theater.
