Insider Tips!

The Depot Theatre season is about to begin…

Just in time, we’ve put together a short list of insider tips for our patrons!

In no particular order, here at the top 4:

1. $20 Preview Nights sell out fast!

“Preview Night” performances for each main stage production occur on the first Friday (7:30PM) of that production’s run. A Preview Night is a fully rehearsed and staged performance, although some directorial decisions may be changed for future performances, and is offered at a lower price to ensure that theatre is more accessible for everyone. Tickets for Preview Night performances are $20.* Preview Night dates for 2019 are:  June 28, July 19, and August 9.  More Info

Many thanks to our Preview Night Sponsor: Emmet Carter Green Design!

The Depot Theatre and participating area restaurants have teamed up to offer a great experience – and a terrific way to support professional theatre in the Adirondacks.

These partner restaurants are supporting the Depot in a variety of ways, from donating a percentage of the bill for the meal, to donating gift certificates, to preparing prix fixe meals specifically for Depot patrons, and other valued support!

3. Want to save a couple bucks? Order tickets directly from the box office.

We’re all accustomed to the convenience of purchasing online, and it’s a primary mechanism for Depot Theatre ticket sales, too. However, you can save yourself some money by buying directly from the box office in person or by phone.

Here’s why: A processing fee may be added to tickets purchased online. This fee is charged by a third-party provider, PrintTixUSA, the company that provides the service for the Depot.

If you stop in or call the box office, you will still be charged the $2 facility and education fee, but will avoid the online fees. The Box Office is open from 1:00-4:00 every day EXCEPT Tuesday and on performance days it is open 1:00 to show time.

Stop in or call them at 518.962.4449!


4. Bring a “theatre sweater”

sweaterIt’s a good idea to bring an extra layer to the Depot, as the air conditioning in the theatre does a great job of mitigating the heat coming from the stage lighting, but can make the air in the audience cool enough to make temperature-sensitive folks a bit chilly. So bring a fleece, sweater, sweatshirt, jacket, blanket or cape to ensure that you aren’t distracted from the talented folks on stage!

Have any other questions? Send them to us HERE.

See you at the station!

Cast announced for Depot Theatre’s THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND

(L-R) Lauren Gemelli, Dan Bob Higgins, Michael Indeglio, Megan Koumis, and Zoie Morris.

Westport, N.Y. – The Depot Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND, the first of the theatre’s 2019 season main stage lineup.

THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND is a clever collage of songs from CABARET, CHICAGO and more by the Tony Award-winning team of John Kander and Fred Ebb.

The nonstop hit-parade features five individuals singing unforgettable gems, including “Mr. Cellophane,” “Maybe This Time,” “Cabaret” and “New York, New York,” seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.

“We’ve cast the best of the best for this show, with five extremely talented performers, one of whom has performed some of this show’s material on the national tour of Chicago,” said Depot Theatre Producing Artistic Director Kenney Green. “Every one of these artists is a seasoned veteran, and they are all making their Depot debut. Our audiences are in for a real treat!” 

Lauren Gemelli’s New York City experience includes City Opera’s CANDIDE, national tours of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, CHICAGO: THE MUSICAL, 42nd STREET, and a long list of regional theatre roles at Arena Stage, Trinity Rep Theatre by the Sea, and Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston.

Dan Bob Higgins’s previous credits include: WEST SIDE STORY tour, ELF THE MUSICAL tour, CHASING RAINBOWS: THE ROAD TO OZ (world premier), and other productions at MSMT, Ogunquit Playhouse, Goodspeed Opera House, and Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre.

Michael Indeglio’s resume features tours of TITANIC, MAME, and FOREVER PLAID, with favorite regional roles as Jon in TICK TICK…BOOM, Jaime in THE LAST FIVE YEARS, Seymour in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and IN MY BODY.  He is also a current member of the Jersey Tenors. 

Megan Koumis was last seen in the Off-Broadway show MADE IN AMERICA at The Public Theatre in New York City. Her regional credits include: EVITA, JEKYLL AND HYDE, GODSPELL, JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, XANADU, and GUYS AND DOLLS. Television credits include: THE DEUCE, on HBO and a commercial for RealSleep by RealSimple.

Zoie Morris is originally from Norfolk, VA. Her Broadway/national tour credits include: RAGTIME and THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL (national tour). Off-Broadway credits include: HARLEM SONG RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR. Favorite regional theatre credits include: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, CAMELOT, SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE, RAGTIME, and THE WIZ. Zoie has been filming THE GOOD FIGHT TV series for the past 2 years.

“I selected this production in part because it features some of the greatest collective work from bigger Kander and Ebb productions that the Depot doesn’t have the capacity to produce individually,” said Green. “THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND packages the best of their songbook into a stunning musical production that our audiences will love.”

THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND is sponsored by The Galley Restaurant and Bar at Westport Marina. Performances run June 29-July 14, with a $20 preview on June 28.

Tickets and information are available by calling the box office at 518.962.4449 or online at depottheatre.org.
