Open Group

Theater is a place to feel at home, feel free, and to explore qualities you might not even know you had. 

Or to develop further what you know you’ve got! If you want to have one night a week where you can dive into a different world and let all of you out... You’ve found the right place. We also have our own bar where we enjoy lots of after rehearsal chill-outs.


When decide which play to do together. Jo, our director, lays our the possibilities and we go from there. Input by the group is always valued.





We hope you will join us in our cozy and homely workspace for rehearsals that are both fun and challenging so that together we can proudly develop ourselves as actors.

Below you will find the faces of our 2021/2022 season with a personal quote about their experiences with us.

"You make me most happy by giving me a hunderd ideas! The weirder, the better, all is good. It then gets molded iinto our show. We make something togerther",.

New Season

On the 28th of September 2022, we will be starting our new season! There are still some spots open for new members to join. For this project, we will be accepting players from entry and intermediate levels. All we ask is an open mind to learn from each other. Every actor always has their own process, no matter how ‘high’ the level. In order to maintain that development, our group consists of no more than ten actors.

Rehearsals are every Wednesday night from 20:00 to 22:30. There are three saturday or sunday rehearsals and one full weekend rehearsal near the live performance dates. This season is from the 28th of September 2022 till the performance weekend (around half May 2023)

Open rehearsals

This year we will have two open rehearsals where you can meet the group and our director. This will be on Wednesday the 14th and 21st of September 2022 at 20:00. It will take place at our own rehearsal space at ‘de Roos van Dekamaweg 4’ in Amsterdam.

The fee for season 2022-2023 is € 330,-

Meet The Group



"Jo is a very attentive, supportive, and inspiring director, fully committed to her craft. She lives and breathes Shakespeare. She cares about the group a lot, but she also asks for a level of professionalism, seamlessly adjusting her approach to make everyone equally excited and challenged at the same time."



"Park Avenue Theater has a very open atmosphere. We always start and end the rehearsals together, giving them an incredible and welcoming feeling.

Jo always knows exactly how to help you improve, both as an actor and as a person."



Playing a Shakespeare character is being in the skin of a creature of the past and a creature
of today at the same time. We explore between the classic and contemporary, with their
encounters and disagreements. It's an impossibly beautiful experience!

Jo is very supportive and encouraging.



"I love it! 

In the rehearsals there is so much focus in the group and it's a safe place to learn.


Jo is very precise and involved director. She is always looking for new ways to improve the actors individually and the group as a whole. It's worth the long travel!



Park Avenue is like a second home.

It's a place where everyone can be themselves, where you can share you, and work on amazing plays

Jo is a really loving, caring and hardworking person. She really tries to understand what you
need and gives support in a way that you also have enough room to figure it out yourself.



The group is very welcoming and works well and decicated together.


It's a great place for me to keep growing as an actor.
