Depot Theatre AcademyWestport, N.Y. –The Depot Theatre Academy outreach and education program is pleased to offer an in-person Musical Theatre/Monologue Rep Class from September 28-October 26 on Mondays from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

This 5-week course is ideal for those interested in preparation for auditions, public speaking training and general acting craft development. Participants ages 18 and older will learn two monologues and two songs, and work together with instructors to find a monologue that complements the song to form a seamless package to utilize for auditioning and showcasing.
Course instructors are the Depot’s Producing Artistic Director Kenney Green and Adam Michael Tilford, both seasoned theatre professionals. “We’re excited to offer this new program,” said Kenney Green. “Participants will learn how to ACT a song, not just sing it, and to learn how to find and implement new techniques of expression.” 
The class will be held at the Depot Theatre at 6705 Main St., Westport, NY, and is limited to 10 participants. Face coverings will be required while entering and exiting the theatre, and any time when in close proximity to others. Strict physical distancing will be implemented, with designated seating in the theatre, and one participant on stage at a time.
Interested individuals should contact Katie Shepard by email at to reserve their spot and/or print and send the registration form to Depot Theatre, PO Box 414, Westport, NY 12993. More information and the registration form is available online at
