In honor of the Depot Theatre’s 40th year in business, Champlain National Bank has pledged $2,000 to support the theatre in 2018.  This money will be used to underwrite the performances of the play, The 39 Steps, which runs from Friday, July 20 – Sunday, August 5.

“We’re thrilled to be able to give the Depot Theatre such a big gift for their anniversary,” said Jackie Hallock, Vice President and Director of Marketing.  “The Bank got its start in Westport, so we look for meaningful ways to support the community that has supported us since 1909.  Contributing to the arts and cultural events and organizations in town is a big part of how we give back, and the Depot Theatre, which provides professional theater during the summer months, is one of the organizations that is deserving of that support.”

“We’re grateful for Champlain National Bank’s generous sponsorship," said Kim Rielly, Executive Director of the Depot Theatre.  “The Depot's continued success is a testament to the support we receive from our donors, friends, local businesses, and partners, and we’re excited to incorporate the story of our long-term business relationship with Champlain National Bank into our 40th anniversary season celebration!”
