"Whoopee" means "to engage in uproarious merrymaking," and this monthly event definitely meets that criteria... Please join us as a writer, an actor, or a spectator!
Here's how it works:
Anyone can write and submit a 10 minute play,
Anyone can show up to act in a 10 minute play,
Anyone can show up just to watch the mayhem!
The titles of that evening's play submissions are placed in one jar, and the names of willing actors in another. Plays and actors are then selected at random to perform the piece. The writers are given a few moments to prep their team, and then... the play is performed. A total of ten plays will be performed and, with a 20 minute intermission, the match will last around two hours. That's the format: the fun is very real and the action is totally unpredicable!
The theme for Friday, January 12 is...
"WINTER IS COMING or WINTER IS HERE"
This event is for adults age 18+ ONLY, as the content can be of an adult nature.
Friday, JAN 12, 2018. Doors open at 6:30p. Match begins at 7:30p.
Cash bar is available. There is NO admission or submission fee. Donations happily accepted!
The idea and format for KCTG's Patchwork Whoopee is taken (with their kind permission) from Portland, Maine's The Crowbait Club. Their monthly "Theatre Deathmatch" event has proved wildly popular...and the movement is spreading!

The Kent County Theatre Guild's Education Outreach Program is looking for adult men and women to fill some roles in its first ever Educational Outreach Performance. We will perform Seussical Kids for the WB Simpson Elementary School on Friday, MAR 2, 2018 (Dr. Seuss' birthday).
Participants will need to be available during school hours on this day. The show is 30 minutes long, and we will perform it twice. The cast will be made up of adults from the Kent County Theatre Guild and students from Caesar Rodney High School. The show will be directed by John Muller.
Education Outreach Auditions Announced...
Auditions will be held on Wednesday DEC 13 and Thursday DEC 14 at 7:00p at the Patchwork Playhouse. Please prepare 16-32 bars of a children's tune for the audition. You may choose to prepare a song from the show. If you prepare a song not in the show, please also bring the backing track (without vocals) on a CD or your phone. We will be able to play both. If you prepare a song from the show, we already have the backing track. NO ACCOMPANIST WILL BE PROVIDED. However, a piano is on the premises, so you can bring an accompanist, if you wish.
Rehearsals will take place at the Patchwork Playhouse until the week prior to the show when rehearsals will move to Simpson Elementary School.
AUDITION NOTICE: Putting It Together...
Our Current Project...

The cast consists of three men and two women. The show runs on FEB 9-10-11 and FEB 16-17, 2018. Those wishing to audition should prepare a selection from Stephen Sondheim's catalogue. It is requested that all those interested in auditioning also be familiar with the music from the show (the 1999 Broadway version), as the directors may ask those auditioning to sing a selection from the show at the audition.
