Kerr said talent like Raposa set Fort Salem Theater apart from other local companies.
"It lets people know consistently they're going to see something that's good. Capital Rep doesn't have Broadway performers much. The shows that come to Proctors are road shows with people who probably have never been on Broadway but you come to Fort Salem and see people who have a resume," said Kerr.
