Our annual Spring Benefit is nearing: Sunday, May 21 at 5 p.m. at Riverfront Park at Garrison's Landing. Expect delicious food, refreshing cocktails, fairly witty toasts, willow trees and lots of friendly people who think the Depot is on to something good. This year's benefit honors Bob Bickford, a longtime board member whose unflagging support for the theater is an inspiration. A special matinee performance of Anne of Green Gables, starting at 2 p.m., will precede the benefit. Please consider joining us; we'd love to see you.
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!
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.
