WESTPORT — The Depot Theatre will be bringing back its popular “Bingo for the Depot” on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Westport Heritage House.
Proceeds will go towards the Depot Theatre’s Education Outreach programs. Each summer, the Depot Theatre presents an Apprentice Company (ages seven and older) performing a staged radio mystery play, as well as Shakespeare-In-The-Park (ages 12 and older) in Westport’s Ballard Park overlooking Lake Champlain, all free of charge to the participants.
“It is very important to the Depot Theatre to provide an opportunity for local students to perform on such a large scale,” said Managing Director Y. Angel Wuellner. “Who knows we may be seeing the next great actor for the Depot Theatre stage.”
The cost to attend “Bingo for the Depot” is $5 for entry and the first card, and $1 for each additional card.
“Bingo is part of the Depot Theatre’s long history,” Artistic Director Shami McCormick said. “ We’re excited that it has been brought back in time for our 35th Anniversary Season.”
The Depot Theatre recently announced its 2013 Summer Main Stage Season, which will be the theatre’s 35th Anniversary Season. “Early Bird” priced subscriptions are available until Feb. 1 and can be purchased online and by mail for as low as $65. Single tickets will be available for purchase in April. The Depot Theatre offers discounted ticket and subscription process for Seniors, Students, and Groups.
