Oprah's coming to town


OPRAH WINFREY will be in town to shoot her talk show from Baltimore's Convention Center June 19.

Winfrey's broadcast from the Big Crab coincides with the Broadcasting, Promotion and Marketing Executives Conference taking place there. So far, no confirmation on the topic of the show, so stay tuned.

THE LORD BALTIMORE HOTEL is hosting a showcase for government and military planners on June 27. Coordinated by events planner Joni Carter, guest of honor and keynote speaker for the event is Adrian Cronauer, the author and inspiration for "Good Morning Vietnam," the movie in which Robin Williams portrayed the veteran.

Cronauer will be receiving a donation from the hotel for the Vietnam Veteran Institute.

AROUND TOWN: Anne Boucher and Normie Harris are co-chairing "Stepping Out" for the Schapiro Training and Employment Program tonight at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The event will feature an open bar and supper, an auction and fashion show from Caron's Boutique, and an appearance by fashion designer Carlous Palmer. Tickets are $50. Call 625-1877.

THE HONORABLE LOUIS Goldstein was presented with the Tree of Life Award by the Jewish National Fund at the Annapolis Ramada last night.

PLAY IT AGAIN: The cast and crew of the Vagabond's Production of the Noel Coward comedy, "Hay Fever," were treated recently to a visit by one of Baltimore's grande dames, Peggy Waxter.

The 86-year-young former Thespian took a front-row seat for the production in which she starred as Sorel for the Vagabond in 1929. Waxter kibitzed with the cast after the show, joking that she remembered every line except those of the character she portrayed. "I listened to everybody else's," she laughed.

FINALLY, the Oriole Advocates in conjunction with the Orioles will host the eighth annual Hall of Fame Luncheon on June 28 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Baltimore.

This year's inductee, Hal "Skinny" Brown who played for the O's from 1955 to 1962, will be honored. Call Richard Grubbs at 252-0268 for tickets.
