Depot Theatre annual Gala event set for Saturday

— Coming Saturday, Aug. 11, is the Depot Theatre’s Annual Gala Dinner and Auction. This exciting tent pole event will feature an opportunity to mingle with the cast and crew of the Depot Theatre’s current production, “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” at the beautiful Westport Country Club.

Guests of this event will enjoy dinner and cocktails and are welcome to join in on bidding at the live and silent auction and to shake a leg on the dance floor.

“The Gala is really my favorite Depot event of the calendar,” says Y. Angel Wuellner, “it’s really a wonderful opportunity for the Depot to thank all of those who support us throughout the year.”

For more information about the Gala and to purchase tickets, contact the Depot Theatre box office at 962-4449.

“The Marvelous Wonderettes,” the Depot Theatre’s third main-stage show is in full swing. This catchy musical set in 1958 is so full of tunes from the 50s.

“They’ll sing all your favorite songs better than you remember them,” Shami McCormick, Artistic Director of the Depot, said.

The show will play at the Depot Theatre until Sunday, Aug. 19.

At the Saturday Aug. 11, 2 p.m. performance, the Depot Theatre and PromCon will be collecting gently worn prom and bridesmaid dresses for charity. Those who are able to donate a dress will receive a complimentary ticket to the Depot Theatre’s final show of the 2012 season, “Real Women Have Curves,” opening Aug. 24.

Bingo for the Depot is happening again on Tuesday, Aug. 14, at the Heritage House in Westport from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Bingo was how the Depot got started,” says Beth Glover, a Depot Theatre Board Member and performer of the upcoming Mississippi Voodoo on Thursday Aug. 16, “We are so thrilled that it is back and people are loving it.”
