Neva Small: Not Quite an Ingenue
Broadway and film star Neva Small (Henry, Sweet Henry; Fiddler on the Roof) stars in a one-woman show that whimsically traces the highlights of her life through the music that has carried and nurtured her professionally and personally. An entertainment that offers some comfortable memories and more than a few surprises, all delivered with the intimacy and joy of a seasoned performer. (



On Saturday, July 7, at 11 AM, Broadway star and recording artist Neva Small will present a children’s entertainment at Fort Salem Theater. Admission is free for everyone. Neva and Friends will blend interactive music, puppetry, and movement in a celebration of self-expression and summer, designed for ages 3-9, but accessible to all ages.

Neva will be in Salem performing for the Grand Opening Weekend of The Cabaret at Fort Salem Theater. “Two of our supporters checked out Neva’s website and saw that she loves performing for kids,” said Jay Kerr, Artistic Director at the theater, “Their generous anonymous gift to the community will fund the show.”

A Broadway veteran by the age of twelve, Neva Small holds two masters degrees in education from NYU, including one in Children’s Television. As an educator, she has used music and the arts as a cross-discipline teaching tool from pre-school through twelfth grade. Her watershed performance role was as Tevye’s third daughter, Chava, in the musical film, Fiddler on the Roof.

Rod Ferrone: Tap into Your Heart
Rod Ferrone, world-class top dancer and entertainer, has performed to critical acclaim throughout the planet, wowing his audiences with his unique blend of tap, physical comedy, eccentric moves and dazzling hat tricks.  Critics have likened him to Astaire, Cagney and Chaplain and yet he commands a presence and style that make him one of the most inventive and original hoofers of his generation.  Jazz, hip-hop, pop, Latin, rock’ n’ roll, classical music – if it’s got a pulse, he’ll lay down some rhythmic patterns at breathtaking speed interspersed with crafty hat tricks and ultra-smooth moves. Steeped in the nostalgia of the Golden Age of Song, Rod's vaudeville song-and-dance act will remind us that the past is still alive and thriving!
