Come See My Friend Tim Nelson At Fort Salem!

Come see my friend Tim Nelson at the Fort Salem Theater this weekend!  He'll be performing with the easy-on-the-eyes Sandra Bargman,  most recently seen as Aldonza in Man of La Mancha.   You may recall Time from Fort Salem's They're Playing Our Song with Benita Zahn. (He also directed my show Corn! The Musical).  Sandra Bargman has appeared in Broadway national tours, off-Broadway, in regional theater, and cabaret from New York City to Tokyo. Tim Nelson was the resident musical director and a director for Park Playhouse in Albany for over ten years, and is currently managing director of the Rose Theater in Westminster, CA.  This is big time talent the likes of which you'd have to go to the "other" Broadway in NYC to see.  That's pretty cool, when you think about it.  You'll be impressed.  A Battenkill Guaratee!

40 minutes East of Saratoga and a world away; the Battenkill Valley is a Cornucopia of Cool. No Interstates. No noise. No hurry. Called "The Tuscany of New York", the region abounds in farm-crafted cheeses, creameries, heirloom vegetables and specialty meats you can buy right off the farm. Art galleries that will amaze you. Scenery that will inspire you. And through it all runs the Battenkill River, an astonishingly clear and gentle water playground that also happens to be the toughest trout fishery in the U.S.A Like touring? There's a reason the largest pro-am bike race in America happens here. And don't get me started on the Revolutionary war history, or the “you won't believe what I found: antiques and shops.

AL BUDDE has a lot of interests in fly fishing, playwriting, canoeing (and tubing), history, shopping, dining, friendships and he counts himself among the fortunate few who have found a place where all of those things collide: The Battenkill Valley. He knows (almost) everyone here, and will be your personal guide to all of those hidden places, activities, sights and scenery it would take you years to discover on your own. Discover the Battenkill Valley. Have fun. Make new discoveries. Renew your soul. And start here!
