From 2014 our open submissions process is changing. We will no longer be accepting unsolicited scripts and scores.
To allow us the chance to meet more writers in person and to give immediate feedback/response to their work we are holding a number of Pitching Days throughout the summer. Please read all the questions below before getting in touch with us. If you require any further information please email email@example.com
What is a Pitching Day?
A Pitching Day is a chance for Perfect Pitch to meet with up to 12 teams of writers in a day and be presented with extracts from their new musicals. Each writing team will be given a 30 minute time slot which will include a 10 minute Pitch alongside time to set-up / get-out and a chance for Perfect Pitch to ask you further questions on what you have presented.
What should the Pitch consist of?
The Pitch should include extracts of the score performed live. This can be by performers that the writers bring in with them or can be performed by the writers themselves (we are unable to assist with casting or rehearsals/rehearsal space for the pitches). There will be a piano provided and space for up to 8 performers. There will be no further production values available (e.g. no microphones, music stands etc). If writers bring performers along there is the option to also have scene extracts performed live for us if they wish. The Pitch should also include a description of the concept for your musical and a very short synopsis. Everything should form part of the spoken / sung presentation and no further written materials are required at this stage. If we would like to see a full script or hear more of the score we will request it at a later date after the pitch. A more detailed description of how to best Pitch your show will be sent to all writers once they have applied.
Who can apply for the Pitching Days?
The Pitching Days are open to all writers who are currently full time residents in the UK. For your show to be eligible it must (in your opinion) be in need of further dramaturgical development. i.e. you are looking for mentorship and workshop opportunities for script and score re-writes. It is fine for a full draft of the show to have been written and for the show to have had a previous production providing you are now looking at stripping the material back down to make improvements and develop the piece to the next stage.
To pitch your show every member of the current writing team must be able to attend the Pitching Day.
How do I apply for the Pitching Days?
