The SF Playhouse in San Francisco will be hosting the West Coast debut of the new musical Coraline, based on Neil Gaiman’s novel. The musical features a book by Gaiman and music by Stephin Merritt. It will be directed by Bill English and is scheduled to run from November 16-January 15.
Memorabilia from Coraline, including signed posters, books, and gym shoes, are being auctioned off on E-bay through July 26 with the proceeds to go to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Some items in the auction are signed by author Neil Gaiman, others by actresses Dakota Fanning or Teri Hatcher.
