Depot Theatre Awarded Workforce Development Grant

Depot Theatre in Amtrak train stationThe Depot Theatre in Westport on Lake Champlain has been awarded funding by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) in the amount of $26,250.

The award is the result of a successful Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Initiatives Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) for fiscal year 2018-2019.

NYSCA also supported the Depot Theatre with a multi-year general-operating support grant of $15,000 per year for each 2018 and 2019. In 2017 the Depot Theatre replaced the seating and carpeting in its 134-seat theatre, which was funded in-part by a facilities program grant from NYSCA.

The new funding, a workforce development grant, is expected to allow the theatre to add a full time staff position. The new associate director/company manager is expected to be responsible for coordinating administrative activities related to human resources and company management, finance and development.

The theatre has announced its 2019 main stage season, which begins on June 28. For more information about the Depot Theatre, visit their website.
