This presentation was given as part of the session "Prescripts and Postscripts: Connecting Theatre Companies and Archives in the Pacific Northwest" at the Northwest Archivists Conference in Vancouver, B.C. in May 2013. The description for the entire session is as follows: While some theatre companies maintain their own in-house archives or have developed relationships with archival repositories, many still struggle to remain focused on the pressing challenges of finding funding, adequate rehearsal and office space, and just trying to get the next show open. In 2009, the American Theatre Archive Project (ATAP), an initiative of the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR), was formed to provide some much-needed assistance to theatre companies trying to care for their archival records. Deploying regional teams composed of archivists, dramaturges, and scholars throughout North America, ATAP has been steadily developing a network of resources and community of practice around theatre archives. This session will introduce conference attendees to ATAP and will feature participants who will share several projects in the Pacific Northwest that have connected theatre companies with archives in a variety of ways.
