Hot Topics in Playback Troupes

Virtual Event Virtual Event

February 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm EST

Come strengthen your Playback practice by learning from the experience of other Playback companies.  Bring your questions, concerns, successes and challenges.  Each month, we’ll focus on a pre-chosen topic commonly shared by many Playback troupes.  First, we’ll hear briefly from 2-3 different Playback companies, then dig into facilitated discussion where all can share.  One of PNA’s coaches will be available for 1:1 follow up, if desired. Feel free to stay afterwards to chat with participants.

Open to all PNA members, whether currently in troupe or not
Facilitated by: Leslie Becknell Marx (Portland,
