Depot Theatre season begins

He said the Facebook page has also helped raise more than $200 for the Depot's Shakespeare-in-the-Park program - a free summer program for youth.

"For community-based organizations with little or no money for marketing, it's essential to take advantage of these tools," said Casquilho; "they're free!"

Casquilho has given seminars on social media for arts organizations and has offered to advise any nonprofit or community groups with questions about how to use on-line social media to promote their missions. He can be contacted by calling 962-8680.

"I can't build your Web site, but I can show you how to get your blog published to your Facebook account, and things like that," he said.

As it has in recent seasons, the Depot Theatre will continue to offer "Name Your Price Night" for the first Monday evening performance of each production, allowing patrons to see the show for whatever price they're willing to pay. The first is July 12.

More information, including a complete schedule, ticket prices and description of 2010 productions at the Depot Theatre, can be obtained at www.depottheatre.org or by calling 962-4449.
