A Broadway Veteran Returns to Fort Salem Theater

Fort Salem Theater welcomes the return engagement of Broadway performer, Bill Carmichael, in an evening of love songs entitled, ‘Everybody Loves a Lover,’ on Saturday, November 16, at 8 p.m. Carmichael will introduce to the Washington County audience his special guest, Clifton Park native Heather-Liz Copps, who has just finished a run in the Not So Common Players’ production of ‘The Secret Garden.’

One of those rare Broadway performers actually from Manhattan, Bill Carmichael’s performing career started as a chorister at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, through a role in the Broadway chorus of ‘Peter Pan’ with Sandy Duncan. He is one of the original cast members of the off-Broadway hit, ‘Forbidden Broadway,’ performed for a time with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Cats,’ and was in the original cast of the ABBA musical, ‘Mamma Mia!’

He and his wife, dance director Susan Burk, run Emerson’s House Bed and Breakfast in Vergennes.

Copps has sung with the Albany Pro Musica, at the New York Theatre Institute and with the Schenectady Light Opera Company. She starred opposite Fort stalwart, Jerry Gretzinger in ‘The Music Man’ this summer.

The following week at Fort Salem, the Cabaret hosts ‘Wine, Woman, and Song II,’ with author and wine expert David Howell and singer Lynne Kerr. Reservations are required for the wine tasting and suggested for all shows. Visit fortsalemtheater.com or call 518-854-9200 for more information.
