THE PiTCH and How to Submit

The Rationale: The purpose of The PiTCH is to provide a venue for creative teams to explore their vision of a musical theatre piece in its early stages and to garner audience reactions to assist them in the development of the final product.

The Format: Three members of the creative team (composer, playwright, musical director, etc.) present a 60-70 minute summary version of their musical theatre piece. Instrumentation will be on piano and/or other instruments which members of the creative team may play. The Festival will provide a piano only. If it is a book musical, it must contain substantial pieces of at least five songs. Solid descriptive narration is suggested when summarizing important plot points.

The Setting: Each week for ten weeks one creative team will be invited to PiTCH their idea. 10 projects will be selected. Each team will PiTCH before live audiences in the 80-seat Theater Mack located in Auburn, NY. Audience feedback will include a short face-to-face session following each presentation, as well as written surveys collected from the audience after each presentation.

Artist Support: Those creative teams invited to present their idea will receive travel expenses to and from Auburn, as well as accommodations during their one week stay. Rehearsal space will be provided for the entire week. Creative teams will be encouraged to change the presentation as they see fit based on audience responses.
