Actors Drop in Meetup
Join us for some dramatic, hilarious, disciplined and daring theatre every Tuesday night. Beginners welcome. The audience made up of about 20 participants is friendly and supportive of everyone. We have a core group of about 10 and new people every week who cold read scenes from classic plays, film, television as well as newly written scenes never performed before and we'd like you to to check us out. We get better at what we do and have a lot of fun! Lately we have been getting record numbers of new and experienced actors that total about 18. We socialize and sing later at karaoke. The location is at Cineworks which is the back alley entrance to the Pacific Cinemateque at 1181 Howe. (The alley entrance is between Davie and Helmcken, closer to Helmcken in downtown Vancouver B.C.) If you are in front of the Cinemateque walk left (north) to Helmcken then take a left till you get to the alley. Turn left into the alley and walk by 8 parking spaces till you get to a door with an Actors Drop In sign on it.You can also park in one of the spaces. We regret that we are no longer able to allow people to watch for free. If you are watching and would like to participate at any time, please approach the facilitator.
