The 62nd season at the Kent County Theatre Guild is off to a great start. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is currently in rehearsals, and plans are beginning to take shape for Design for Murder. In addition to our shows, we have been running with an Improvisation Workshop and classes in tap dance. While all of this is taking place, the Board of Trustees has been working diligently on our next action plan: the renovation of the theatre. We will begin the renovation this spring with an expected finish date of July 2016. Our production of Twelve Angry Men will be the grand reopening of the new Patchwork Playhouse. I am sure some of you are thinking: What do you mean “reopening?”
The Board of Trustees has made the decision for the health and comfort of our patrons, to close the theatre for the months of June and July to fully complete the “dirty” part of the renovation. Since the dust will be flying, we want your experience to be the best it can be; therefore, we are relocating our summer musical to the Caesar Rodney Theatre in Camden, Delaware.
Caesar Rodney High School’s principal, Dr. Sherry Kijowski, has graciously made the Caesar Rodney Theater available to us at no charge for our summer production of the musical Funny Girl. There will plenty of parking, plenty of music and hopefully some “People” for the Funny Girl debut on July 15, 2016. This is the only show that will not be held at the Patchwork Playhouse, as we will return to the playhouse for KCTG's September 2016 production of Twelve Angry Men.
Please continue to follow us on our website at www.kctg.org, as well as our Facebook page. We look forward to sharing this adventure with you and hope to see you at theatre.
Sincerely, John Muller
Chairman of the Board of Trustees
