      Additional Information about Membership
      Play Cafe memberships are an opportunity to build our community. Membership in Play Cafe does not provide an opportunity to vote on Play Cafe matters. Members of the community who would like to participate in the development and growth of Play Cafe as an organization should contact Jerome Joseph Gentes to consider joining our active Steering Committee. Members and nonmembers have an equal opportunity to have their scenes read at Scene Nights, currently based on a first-come, first-served basis.
