Westport, N.Y. – The Depot Theatre in Westport on Lake Champlain is pleased to announce the appointment of Angel Marvin as its full time Associate Director/Company Manager.
The added full time position is made possible in its initial year with funding via a New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) workforce development grant, the result of a successful Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Initiatives Consolidated Funding Application (CFA).
The new associate director/company manager will be responsible for coordinating administrative activities related to human resources and company management, finance and development.
Marvin possesses both extensive development experience and a love for theatre. An Elizabethtown native, Angel has gravitated professionally toward community-oriented non-profits for most of her career. Her 17 years’ experience in proposal writing and grant administration, project management and planning include past posts at the Nature Conservancy, Lake Placid Connecting Youth and Community and the Village of Lake Placid/Town of North Elba. Marvin worked most recently as a Leadership Gifts Officer at Vassar College, her alma mater.
She has performed in or directed 21 community theatre productions in Lake Placid and the Champlain Valley as well as, years ago, appearing in two professional shows at the Depot.
“There is tremendous momentum here, and I’m proud to be part of it,” said Marvin. “Working as part of a wonderful team at the Depot in my beloved Adirondacks pretty much brings it all together for me.”
“We’re very excited to bring someone of Angel’s caliber into the fold,” said Kim Rielly, the Depot’s Executive Director. “In just a short period of time she’s already proven to be a tremendous asset, demonstrating that increasing our staff capacity will propel us more quickly toward our strategic goals.”
The theatre recently announced its 2019 main stage season, which begins on June 28. For more information about the Depot Theatre, visit www.depottheatre.org.
