Welcome to Cabaret
By Lawrence Hillis

SALEM – The Fort Salem Theater has been proud to host yet another cabaret this weekend. The theater community was honored to be part of the performance of such a distinguished ingénue as soon to be married Kerri Lynn Jennings. Her imposing voice and vibrant presence pull the viewer into her world of intrigue and gypsy magic while her stories of real love grip the heart. The humor of Broadway auditions, the pull of ambition, and the strength of a woman in transition made this a night to remember, while the new cabaret room comes alive with stars and emotion evoking lighting. Great songs from Jason Robert Brown, Oklahoma, and Thoroughly Modern Millie enchant listeners and tell a real story through the sounds of music, the sounds of theater; welcome to the Fort Salem Cabaret.

Though Ms. Jennings’ show has run its course, the Theater at Fort Salem will be presenting The Hills of Hebron are Alive (yes with music) as renowned pianist Geoffrey Gee, folk rock guitarist Rich Wirsing, and the theater’s very own Lynne Kerr come together in a powerful gathering of talent.

The tickets for this show are limited so it’s best to call the theater early, or perhaps Mr. Jay Kerr could be persuaded to offer lawn seating!
