Thank you for your support of The University Club Foundation.
Founded on the belief that each generation has a responsibility to embrace, preserve
and promote its shared history, the University Club of Albany Foundation, Inc.,
a 501c3 corporation, was formed to recognize and maintain the unique historic
and architectural significance of the University Club building, its historic neighborhood
and the city of Albany where it has been located since its inception in 1901. |

hosted by

The University Club is delighted to kick off 2016 by

hosting an interactive New Years Day production from
Albany-based theater collective Creative License.
Creative License is a different kind of theater company,
focused on acting and the page, innovative staging and
unique venues for a discerning audience. Divided features
3 original short plays penned by local writers that, much
like those classic Choose Your Own Adventure books of the
1980s and 90s, allow the audience to vote to determine
how the action unfolds.
Creative License was founded by local theater artists
Aaron Holbritter and Casey Polomaine in March of
2014. Over a plate of chicken parm and a slice of tomato
pie, Holbritter and Polomaine discussed the need for a
theatrical group in the Capital Region that would break
down the barriers between the artistic world and the
general public. They focus on the written word and the
honest, rich performances of its actors, and have already
enjoyed critical acclaim for A Steady Rain and Dog Sees
God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, both
presented at The Albany Barn.
Up next for Creative License is I Am My Own Wife,
opening February 19th at Albany Barn. Visit to learn more about
this and other Creative License productions and programs.
This event is presented by the University Club Foundation, a 501c3 corporation, and the Terri Boor Cultural
Programming Fund, established to support the social, cultural and historic preservation programs of the University
Club Foundation, including maintenance of the Club as a
venue for visual and performing arts.
