My name is Patrick Berger and I'm the editor of PXP.
I want to introduce you to PXP, a resource for all young theatregoers (and hopefully that includes your students).
A project of Theatre Development Fund, PXP's desire is two fold:
1) to remove all the perceived and actual barriers to theatergoing for young people, and
2) build a community of young people interested in theatre as both audience members and artists.
At the moment, PXP hosts quite a selection of things
(and we publish new content daily):
- POST - young audience members reflect on and narrate their theatergoing experience.
- PRE - young artists reflect on and share their experiences in creating theatre.
- PXPEOPLE AT - a team of young photographers profile young theatergoers at the theater.
- LIFESTYLE - PXP's staff writers share theatergoing expectations and helpful hints.
- GET TICKETS - PXP lists the lowest price available to young theatergoers for all Broadway and Off Broadway shows (off Off coming soon).
- OPPORTUNITIES - PXP lists programs, internships, classes and more that are available to young people interested in getting more into theater.
PXP continues to grow.
So check back, because our sections may have expanded.
There are many ways to engage as a teacher:
- Your students are always invited to reflect on their experiences and submit a POST for publication. If you are wondering the guidelines for a POST, check out this page. Or check out our informative animation:
- This one is important - If you and your students are working on a production or will be, we would LOVE to have one of your students reflect on that creative process. Also, we would love to send a writer to experience that work and write about it. But first, we have to know about it. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
If you want something to give to your students, drop us an email (with how many students you have as well as your address) at email@example.com and we will send you our handy PXP info brochure.
So if you want to contact us for any of those reason, or have any questions or any comments...
we welcome them all at:
We hope to hear from you soon!
