Clarkston's Depot Theatre– the historic train depot that has housed the Clarkston theatrical group for 50 years now – underwent a transformation on the outside of the performing stage over the past few years.
This year, CVP was able to purchase and install more modern seating with its 50/50 raffle proceeds. Village Player officials say the new seats brought the seating down to 62, but gives patrons more leg room.
While in the seats, the audience was able to view the work of the newest CVP member who joined the local theater group in its 50thyear.
Yigal Alalouf, a Clarkston resident and native of Jerusalem, captivated the audience with a stunning portrayal of the character ‘Howie’ in the Pulitzer Prize winning drama ‘Rabbit Hole’…a drama about loss, family and coping.
Alalouf says he was honored to have been able to bring this meaningful role to the stage.
He hopes to be a part of other CVP productions in the future.
You can take a look at both the new seating and Alalouf’s performance in the video below.
