Auditions to add ACTORS to the email list will be February 7th starting at 8pm and February 8th starting at 7pm at 36th Street Studios. Please email email@example.com with your HEADSHOT and RESUME to sign up for an audition time slot and to receive sides for said audition. Read about the club below...
“Play Club” consists of several artistic members residing in New York who will meet during the month to participate in a series of Play Club events that focus on performing, writing, directing and producing. Started by The Unknown Artists in the Spring of 2011, Play Club has hosted over 35 readings and has helped hone the cold reading skills of over 150 members. We’ve also given several writers the opportunity to hear their pieces out loud and receive feedback from their work. In the summer of 2011 we even opened up a Play Club branch on the West Coast. Play Club West has been very successful as well and we look forward to continued success with the club on both coasts.
We have a membership due of ONLY $10 a month (And that’s only if you choose to participate that particular month)
FOR ACTORS – Participating in “Play Club” will be beneficial in strengthening your cold reading skills, learning about a play you may not have heard of or know little about, being a part of the beginning stages of someone’s original work, flexing your instincts as an actor, and possibly being considered for a role in a future production of certain plays read during Play Club.
FOR WRITERS – You will be given an opportunity to hear your script out loud. We will provide you with skilled cold readers, a space and script copies of your work in addition to useful feedback.
FOR DIRECTORS – Play Club gives you the chance to flex your directing creativity whether it be a scene for the scene workshops or getting your hands on a full staged reading or production.
• We will be doing scene workshops where we will accept original scenes and/or published scene suggestions for actors to rehearse with a partner and director to be perform in front of an audience.
• We will be doing table readings of original and previously published plays and screenplays.
• We will be doing occasional staged readings of selected original pieces and published pieces.
• We will continue to host Karaoke nights, movie nights, Play Club parties and other PC hosted gatherings.
• We will be producing a full production of 2 shows (minimum) per year.
• We will be adding a bit more awesome crap, if you see below...
For $10 you can participate in ONE or ALL of the following monthly Play Club events:
Scenes will NOW be filmed and you will receive a DVD of your performed scene to show friends and family, to add to a reel, to add to your website, YouTube, Whathaveyou.
You will be performing your rehearsed scene in an actual theatre space with a guaranteed audience. (*Note: The majority of the audience will be fellow Play Club members)
SKETCH AND IMPROV NIGHT
2 nights a month will be dedicated to sketch and improv. One night will be for writing the sketches and the other will be for performance and improv games.
This will also afford the opportunity to start a sketch team!

PAM QUINN Moved to California from New York at age 14 and entered the professional world of writing at 17 on the west coast. By her 20th birthday she had three original works produced in the Los Angeles area. Rising from sketch comedy writing and a background in theatre, Pam collected what she had learned over the years and compiled it into playwriting. She began collaborating on an idea for an original musical (Right Together, Left Together) with Will Collyer and Jacob Harvey. Since moving back to New York in ’05, Pam hasn’t stopped breathing this idea. She co-founded The Unknown Artists (www.theunknownartists.org) with Emily Clark and continues to be prolific within this fantastic company. www.uaplayclub.wordpress.com
