Our 2016 Productions provide a glimpse of the kind of entertainment our Patchwork Players bring to our stage Friday mornings at 11:00, and on the road Wednesdays to regional venues.

Our 52nd summer is being planned all winter long, and we’ll be back with more family-friendly, kid-centric shows at the Weathervane and on the road in 2017.

Wednesdays road trips included bi-weekly visits to the Colonial Theatre, Bethlehem; and trips to the Colebrook School;  presented by GWNCA, Great North Woods Committee for the Arts; to St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts, Berlin; and at the Medallion Opera House, Gorham.  We also perform non-public performances at the Omni Mount Washington Resort and for Copper Cannon Camp.

Road trips made possible by the sponsorship of Crosstown Motors, Littleton, NH:
