35th season set
The Depot Theatre is proud to announce its 35th Anniversary Season.
The 2013 Main Stage Season begins on June 28 with “Route 66,” a world premier musical romantic comedy about a charmingly neurotic big-city journalist and the cowboy photographer with whom she teams up to tell the captivating and quirky stories of the historic old highway. In the process of discovering the beauty of the small towns of America that follow Route 66, the two of them fall in love – not only with one another, but with the good ol’ U.S.A.
On July 19, the Depot will open “Boeing-Boeing,” a hilarious farce about playboy Bernard as he juggles three flight attendant fiances - one American, one Italian, and one German - with careful planning and the reluctant assistance of his beleaguered housekeeper. Weather delays and the invention of a faster Boeing jet bring all three to Paris - and Bernard’s apartment - at the same time, sending his elaborate love life into chaos.
Another world premiere musical opens on Aug. 9. “Funked-Up Fairytales,” is a collection of delightfully twisted fairy tales for sophisticated children and grown-up kids set in the world of Titania, Faireetheeya, and Magikwanda, three street-smart teenage fairies with plenty of wise-cracking attitude - and a final Fairyland Academy exam that they must pass to graduate and earn their Happy Ending Crowns.
The season ends with “Lombardi,” opening on Aug. 30. Football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers. Few people, however, know the real story of Vince Lombardi, the man - his inspirations, his passions, and his ability to drive people to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Based on David Maraniss’ book, “When Pride Still Mattered – A Life of Vince Lombardi,” this hit Broadway play explores Lombardi’s relationship with his wife, Marie, and three of his legendary players during a pivotal week in 1965.
The Depot Theatre will continue to host receptions on the Opening Night of each production where audience members can visit with the cast and crew of the show. The first Monday of each production will continue to be a “Name-Your-Own-Price-Night.” Those tickets will go on sale in June.
Subscriptions are currently available online and by mail for as low as $65. Single tickets and subscriptions by phone will be available in the Spring. The Depot Theatre offers discounted ticket and subscription process for Seniors, Students, and Groups.
