Making room for a seat with your name on it!
Thanks to your support, it’s really happening!

This past summer, the Depot Theatre announced a special capital campaign to replace the audience seating and carpeting in our historic 1876 train station theatre.  The new seats will include accommodations for patrons in wheelchairs as well as LED aisle lighting. Matched by a grant from the New York State Council for the Arts, we set a lofty goal for the project – a sold out house!

Each new seat can be sponsored by contributing $500 or more per seat, which includes a personalized name plate on the seat. Recognition on Front Row seats has been especially reserved for donors wishing to contribute $1000 or more per seat. All contributions of $250+ will be recognized on a permanent display, and all contributors at any level will be recognized in the theatre’s playbills for the coming three seasons.

Thank you for your generosity and continued support of the Depot Theatre!  See you next season, sitting back and enjoying a show in one of our new seats!
