Many thanks to Alison Rooney for her recent stories in the Highlands Current on Company (here), which opens Feb. 24, and Dialogues with Drama (here), a monthly play-reading series that launched in December. Interesting reads, both of them, and worth a look. Company, directed by Maia Guest, was written by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth. It runs on weekends through March 12.
The next installment of Dialogues with Drama, presented by Excellent Creature, is Bertolt Brecht's The Good Person of Szechwan, to be performed March 15.

Oh, the irony. With the launch of our new website (which we hope you like), we're shifting our gaze backward, angling for a glimpse of our history. If you have a photograph of our beloved Depot, we'd love to see it. The one above is courtesy of Putnam County Historian Sarah Johnson and was taken in 1909, when the Depot was still in its teens. If we get enough shots, we'll make a gallery and post them here and on our Facebook page. Thanks!
new music series
The Depot is pleased to announce a new, two-day music series that will bring some of the finest folk musicians in the business to our stage: Depot Folk. On March 25, Italian guitarist Beppe Gambetta will lead a guitar workshop and perform. And on April 8, The Mammals feat Mike + Ruthy will lead a vocal harmony workshop and perform. We're really, really excited about this. These artists are top-shelf. To see them play in a venue as intimate as ours is a rare treat that ought not be missed. Depot Folk is presented in partnership with the American Center for Folk Music.
For more details, visit our Music page. Tickets, for the whole series as well as individual events, are available.
