Having supported the Depot Theatre in countless ways for two decades, Bob Bickford has stepped down from the Depot's board of directors. Bob's expertise, enthusiasm and commitment were essential to the Depot's success. As a board member and volunteer, he was an ace. He's fine actor, too. In the photo above, that's him on the right in To Kill a Mockingbird. Bob was honored at our Spring Benefit with proclamations from Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and Assemblywoman Sandy Galef. Our friends at the Highlands Current wrote about his many years of service here. Many, many thanks, Bob. Cheers.

depot folk: success
Thousands of thank-yous to everyone who came out to help launch Depot Folk. Our new workshop-and-performance series got off to a wildly good start in large part because of you. You, loyal Depot devotees, filled the seats, listened attentively and applauded loudly and generously. What more could we ask? Many, many thanks to Beppe Gambetta and the Mammals feat. Mike + Ruthy for leading such interesting workshops and playing so amazingly well. Please continue to follow these artists and attend their shows. They're keepers. And stay tuned to this website for more information on future Depot Folk shows. This first round went well enough to convince us to give it another try.
