DEPOT THEATRE ANNOUNCES 2022 MAIN STAGE SEASON
The Depot Theatre will ease into live theatre’s “new normal” with a decidedly abnormal (and eclectic) three-show lineup for the 2022 main stage season, which features a tribute to Sondheim, a riveting drama, and a spookily hilarious musical.
The only professional Equity theatre in the Adirondacks, the Depot will continue to adhere to government and Actors’ Equity health and safety guidelines. “Just as we creatively manage the on-stage reaction to trains that interrupt our performances, we are prepared for whatever protocols we’ll need to implement to protect our cast and patrons,” said Kim Rielly, Depot Theatre Executive Director. “As in 2021, we appreciate everyone’s support and flexibility in making it possible to experience live theatre yet again!” The Depot Theatre is located in Westport.
The season opens with the humorous, poignant, and sophisticated musical review, PUTTING IT TOGETHER (June 30 through July 17), followed by OLEANNA
(July 22 – August 7), and then THE ADDAMS FAMILY, A NEW MUSICAL (August 12-28).
