The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) has increased its commitment to the Depot Theatre with a grant of $15,000 per year for the next two years.
The multi-year general-operating support grant is the largest NYSCA award to the Depot in eight years, according to an announcement made by the organization this week.
NYSCA grants are awarded in 15 programs and the Regional Economic Development Council initiative in all 62 counties to support the creation of visual, performing, literary and media arts. The Depot Theatre is one of seven non-profit arts organizations (including two theatre companies) in Essex County to receive funding this year.
The Depot Theatre is a non-profit, professional theatre located in a historic, functioning 1876 train station in the Adirondacks, and operates under an agreement with Actors’ Equity Association. Celebrating its 40th anniversary season in 2018, the theatre currently offers 3-4 productions in the summer along with educational outreach programs.
