“What we try and do is find, encourage, nurture new musical writing talent in this country. It’s what we have to do. Musicals are the lifeblood of the theatre. We have to find new talent, we have to encourage them.”
Michael Ball, Patron of Perfect Pitch
Perfect Pitch, supported by Arts Council England, is currently the only non-profit theatre company in the UK dedicated exclusively to creating, developing, producing and promoting new contemporary British musicals.
Our mission is to create a high standard of new British musical theatre that reflects and connects with today’s diverse and contemporary Britain. We aim to predominantly work with artists whose work is contemporary, challenging and innovative. Musicals that could break boundaries and help us develop an audience’s perception of what the musical theatre art form can be.
We work in partnership and collaboration with venues, writers, producers and creatives all over the UK and beyond.
