Fields Tribute SALEM Cabaret diva Nancy Timpanaro-Hogan brings her tribute to comedienne Totie Fields, “Adorable Me! The Totie Fields Story,” to the Fort Salem Theater in Salem for a twoweekend run starting on Friday, August 3 at 8 p.m. As an overweight teenager with a larger-than-life personality, Ms. TimpanaroHogan was inspired by Totie Fields, a 1960’s era brash, bawdy, overweight comedienne who helped break the glass ceiling for women in stand-up. Fields made more than 20 appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show, and several guest spots on the shows of Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin. After experiencing multiple health problems, she died in 1978 at the untimely age of 48 years old. A native of Mechanicville, Timpanaro-Hogan moved to Manhattan in the 1980s, achieving success with her own unique cabaret style. She toured nationally and internationally, often opening for comic icon Joan Rivers. As her career took off, Nancy realized the debt she owed performers like Totie Fields and began developing “Adorable Me” with its original score. After experiencing some health issues at about the same age as Fields was when she died, Timpanaro-Hogan took time out from her performing career. “When Nancy decided to return to performing, we were delighted she chose our cabaret as her cabaret home,” said Jay Kerr, Fort Salem’s Artistic Director. Big, bawdy and beautiful, Nancy Timpanaro-Hogan will star in “Adorable Me” for eight performances, at 8 p.m. Friday

aspiring singers can compete in three categories. There is no age limit for the contest, which welcomes participants from children through adults. Those who wish to enter should show up at the park a little before 1 p.m. At 2 p.m., there will be a Belly Dancing demonstration, which has been a popular attraction, said Driscoll. The afternoon will also include a Hot Dog Eating contest, at a time to be determined. The festival continues into the evening on Saturday with an Old Fashioned Street Dance in the park at 7 p.m., with music provided by DJ Jenni “A.” A big community bonfire will wrap up the evening. Sunday, August 5 brings the big Turning Point Parade, which steps off at 1 p.m. from the Schuylerville school parking lot off Route 29, then heads south on Route 32. The one and a half hour parade will feature 15 musical groups, along with 100 other marching units. “It’s a fairly good-sized parade,” said Driscoll. “People

start putting their chairs out on the street early in the morning to get a spot. The streets are packed once it starts.” Musical units will include drum corps, military marching bands, and Uncle Sam’s chorus, a barbershop singing group. Driscoll expects several floats, including some from local churches, community organizations, the Keystone Kops and Shriners, the local Lions Club, and more. The parade’s reviewing stand will be in front of Brenda’s Salon, which is where the judges will be viewing the marching units. Following the parade at about 3 p.m., the festival will continue in Fort Hardy Park, where the Chicks ‘n Chaps drill team will do a demonstration and offer pony rides for children. There will also be a display of exotic animals by Jeff Ash of Ashville Game Farm. Live music starts around 5 p.m. with the Dry Town Drifters, and continues at 7 p.m. with the Open Bar Band. The weekend concludes with a spectacular fireworks display by Alonzo Fireworks around 9 p.m. For more information about the festival and parade, call Jean Driscoll at 695-3932 or visit www.turningpointparade.com.

Also on the program is George Onslow’s Piano Trio in D minor, and Brahms’ monumental piano quartet in A major. Musicians Nina Tichman, Ariadne Daskalakis, and Kari Ravnan will also perform.

The Magic Flute CAMBRIDGE Hubbard Hall Opera Theater opens its run of Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” with a pay-what-you-will performance at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 8. Described as “a classic operatic fantasy” by HHOT Artistic Director Alix Jones, “The Magic Flute” is a perfect choice for introducing children to opera, she notes. “It’s filled with fairy tale characters who don’t seem to know who they, where they’re going, or what they’re going to do when they get there, including a couple who fall madly in love before they’ve even met,” said Jones. “It’s a lot like life, and maybe that’s why it’s been one of Mozart’s most popular and beloved works.” The opera is directed by Paul Houghtaling and Kelly Crandell. Tenor Brian J. Kuhl leads the cast as Tamino and Mary Thorne makes her HHOT debut as Pamina. Other performers include Susan Wheeler and international artist Amber Smoke. “The Magic Flute” continues August 10, 11 and 16 at 8 p.m., and August 18 and 19 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $30 general admission and $25 for members, with $20 for students. On Sunday, August 19, a Viennese Brunch will be served
