"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, SEP 8 is...
"THE BEST DAY OR THE WORST DAY"
This event is for adults age 18+ ONLY, as the content can be of an adult nature.
Friday, September 8, 2017. 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!

Auditions Announced for our November Show...
The Kent County Theatre Guild is pleased to announce OPEN CALL AUDITIONS for its final show of the 2017 season Strictly Murder by Brian Clemens on Monday, SEP 18, 2017 and Tuesday, SEP 19, 2017 at 7:00p at the Patchwork Playhouse located at 140 Roosevelt Ave. in Dover, DE. Auditions for this WWII spy thriller will consist of cold readings from the script. There are five characters in the play: Josef (male, approx. 45-60), Suzy Hinchcliff (female, approx. 20-30), Peter Meredith (male, approx. 35-45), Ross (male, approx. 40-50; this is a dual role; one actor will play both parts), Miriam Miller (female, approx. 40-50). Ages are “playable” not necessarily “actual.” The play is set in rural France in 1939 on the eve of WWII but the characters are British. Ability to speak in a British accent is not necessary for the audition. If call backs are necessary, they will be held on Thursday, SEP 21, 2017 at 7:00p at the Patchwork Playhouse. Show dates are NOV 10-11-12 & 17-18-19.
