Niagara University Students, Alumni Presenting ‘CAPbaret’ in Memory of Nick Albano
Those at Niagara University who knew Nicholas Albano would tell you that he wasn’t merely a fan of superheroes – he was a superhero. His powers: love, compassion and kindness.
Albano passed away unexpectedly last summer after battling epilepsy, but NU students and alumni are keeping alive the memory of the Captain America aficionado by presenting a May 11 fundraiser at Artpark’s Mainstage Theater. Titled “CAPbaret,” the two-part, two-hour event, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature Albano’s friends, classmates and NU alumni singing a selection of his favorite songs.
Tickets are $10, with all proceeds benefitting the Nicholas Albano Memorial Scholarship.
The event was conceived by Sarah Joslin, a 2017 Niagara University graduate who said that “CAPbaret” is a way to remember Albano’s wonderful qualities and achievements.
“We are bringing back theatre alumni from NU, as well as other friends of Nick’s, who love to sing,” Joslin said. “They’re coming from all over America for this event, so it’s going to be extremely special.”
