Complete with classic songs from the 60’s, zany romantic comedy and toe-tapping honky tonk, the Depot Theatre has announced its 2015 main stage lineup. “The Bikinis” opens the season on July 10. A non-stop celebration of classics like “It’s In His Kiss,” “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” “Heat Wave,” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” punctuate the story of a girl band’s 20-year reunion.
The opening musical is followed by “New York Water!”, a quirky, off-kilter adult romantic comedy. The story documents Albert and Linda’s relationship from their first fearful meeting in New York City through to the Midwest and on to the left coast as they search for meaning, happiness, and success.
Rounding out the season is the Northeast regional premiere of “Savin’ Up for Saturday Night: The Honky-Tonk Musical”, with an energetic combination of showstoppers, cat fights and love quadrangles set in a one-stop honky-tonk and auto body shop.
In addition to the main stage shows, the Depot’s popular play reading series “La Depot Dangereuse” will return for its second year. This four-night series is offered for the discriminating playgoer who wants cutting-edge drama and comedy, with samples of what’s hot on and off-Broadway, read by local and New York City-based talent. Depot Theatre is the only theatre in the Adirondacks that operates under an agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association.
