Benefits of membership

Houston Playback Theatre (used with permission)

For one company membership, every person in your Playback company can benefit from these ways to learn and to exchange with other Playback groups in the region:  

  • Teleconferences: Join as many PNA’s monthly calls as you wish on a variety of artistic and company topics.  Get to know other practitioners and exchange experience and wisdom.

  • Facebook group:  As a PNA company member, here you can let other PNA members know about your group, it’s events, and what you’re learning.  As an individual member you can post about your individual questions and ideas.

  • Publications:  Receive free downloadable versions plus dramatic discounts on print copies:

  * A Playback Theatre Tookit: through the lens of one company’s perspective (2016)

  * A guide for curious audience members (2019)

  * A guide to teaching Playback Theatre: through the lens of one company’s perspective (2020)

  • Teleconferences: Join as many PNA’s monthly calls as you wish on a variety of artistic and company topics.  Get to know other practitioners and exchange experience and wisdom.

  • Coaching:  Individual and group coaching available for leaders developing new Playback companies, for people taking on the business management aspects of Playback companies, 

  • Periodic gatherings: Connect to other Playback leaders working on common challenges.  

  • IPTN benefits: When you join PNA (if from the U.S. or Canada), you become a member of the International Playback Theater Network (IPTN) at no extra charge.  You will be listed on the IPTN site and be offered discounts to IPTN gatherings.  When PNA began, we were sad that fewer than a dozen companies in our region were IPTN members and not visible to the global community.  The IPTN Board was happy to partner with PNA on this shared membership arrangement, and now in our region 42 companies and 22 individuals are IPTN members.  IPTN receives 1/4  of your membership fee. 

Prices

  • Companies ($150):  All members of the company receive access to downloads of all the publications, plus the other benefits above.  This membership is recommended for you if you’re part of an established company–or starting one.

     

  • Individuals ($100): Receive the benefits listed above.  If desired, you can upgrade to a company membership later, to share benefits with troupe members.  Note: If you wish to join IPTN’s “Practitioner” level membership instead, do this through IPTN’s website.

Please contact us if you’d like to discuss  a “pay-what-you-can” rate.”
