Join Us

Please join the International Playback Theatre Network!


There are four categories of Membership:


  • Group member A Playback Theatre company engaged in performances, or in the process of developing skills to perform.
  • Practitioner member An individual engaged in teaching, performing or using the Playback Theatre method with substantial training and experience, approved by your regional representative and subject to a reference from one other practitioner who knows you. By training we mean having completed a CPT recognised Level 3 programme which is sometimes called Advanced Skills, Advanced Practitioner or the Practitioner course. This isn’t set in stone and you may have acquired substantial experience another way. Please contact your Regional Representative for guidance.  You can identify your regional representative on the ‘About Us’ page.
  • Regular member Any person interested in supporting Playback Theatre.
  • School member group membership for Playback Theatre schools. Schools need to be affiliated to the Centre for Playback Theatre.


Group/School and Practitioner members can use the name and logo of the International Playback Theatre Network. They will also be listed in the IPTN website and have use of the IPTN event calendar with the opportunity to provide information about their work, including links to their own web pages.


If you are joining in the USA or Canada: you are offered a joint membership in both the International Playback Theatre Network and in Playback North America-- but you must join through the Playback North America website.  Also, we encourage you to contact the Regional Representatives Ann Kinnebrew, and Christopher Ellinger, so they can get both your memberships processed for you quickly.


Membership lasts for a period of two years.


All members are listed in the Member Directory, which is published online.
