Tim and Mary Nelson, part-time residents on Salem's Beattie Hollow Road Vermont border, bring their actor friends from the Rose Center Theater in Southern California for yet another theater party at the Fort. Tim has been working at Fort Salem even before we renovated ten years ago. It's a wonderful start-of-summer treat when he mounts a full-scale classic musical with performers who actually take time off from their 9-5 jobs, pay for their own plane tickets, and commute to Washington County to live among real trees and rough it in the mountains. Mary Murphy-Nelson plays Mother Abbess, and Tim, for the first time, plays Captain Von Trapp. A great gift to the Salem community.

Diane Lachtrupp first appeared at Fort Salem in 2008 as a part of Tango Fusion, with her professional partner and husband, Johnny Martinez (Bram Stoker in last season's Dracula's Grandmother). This summer, Diane portrays the lengendary Isadora Duncan, in a biographical drama that recounts a life that informs Duncan's dances, faithfully recreated by the Nacre Dance company. Yet another transplant from Manhattan into the Capital Region's arts community, Ms. Lachtrupp brings a dancer's subtle understanding to the challenges in Duncan's personal life, punctuated and illuminated by the accomplished Nacre dancers. An exciting marriage of music, theater, and dance!

Few of us have been able to keep up with our friends from kindergarten and the early years of elementary school. Yet women still remember that boy who drove them crazy and picked on them, and maybe made them date those bad boys until they settled (down) with the right man. And guys remember that "little red-headed girl" who may, in fact have been blonde. Do we see our first-grade selves when we look in the mirror? Do we see what others see? Join us in our joint parody of the Peanuts gang and of ourselves -- who we are and who we were, with our fabulous foibles and our self-aware senses of humor. The doctor is in, and she's crazier than ever!

The musical theater has long been home to the Strong, Sometimes Flawed, Woman. Annie Oakley (Annie Get Your Gun), who could do anything better than any man can; Rose Hovick (Gypsy), who manipulated her two daughters into show business because she deparately wanted to be a star; Eva Peron (Evita), who manipulated her husband and an entire country; Fanny Brice (Funny Girl), who, as desperate as Rose, rose to stardom and longed for the simple things in life. Musicals can take tragic flaws and turn them into tuneful assets. Kathy Beaver has been playing strong women all her professional life, and has gathered them together to dazzle us and enrich our lives.

Some of us pay view tax to Washington County because our homes face them; we can't head to Glens Falls without seeing them. And when we travel north, either to Burlington on Route 22A or to Canada on the Northway, we appreciate their majesty as we view them or travel through them. The Adirondacks tell millions of stories, and in Adirondack Awakening, we gather many of them to tell with humor, insight, and awe. Several years ago, the authors performed in the world premiere of the work with two accomplished younger actresses. This year we've gone in, as we say in theater, a different direction. You'll be so entertained, you won't realize how much you've learned until you start talking to your friends.
