I Do!” celebrates the ups and downs of a 50-year marriage with song, dance, and some cheerful good humor. The original Broadway production in 1966 starred Mary Martin and Robert Preston, who won a Tony Award for his work.

Since moving to the area, he has performed regularly at Fort Salem. Rosie Spring first performed at Fort Salem five years ago in Tango Fusion Dance Company’s concert “Timeless.” She has performed cabaret at Fort Salem, and has also performed in national tours of “42nd Street” and “A Christmas Carol.” “I Do!
