You’ve got the music. You’ve got the dialogue. You have a show! But . . . what does the audience think? The PiTCH is a unique opportunity for playwrights to get feedback and advice from the people who really matter, and whose approval can make or break a show’s success.

For those unfamiliar with the PiTCH concept, it essentially provides a way for writers and creators to run through a shortened version of their musical, and “pitch” it to an audience. The audience members are given note taking paper and instructions before the show begins, and encouraged to take notes and share encouragement or criticism with the artistic team after the performance. If you’ve ever burned to share advice after seeing a play, this is the perfect opportunity!

In its fourth year helping authors realize their theatrical dreams, the PiTCH series will be playing shows from June 11 until August 1. There will be seven shows total, with a wide and varying range of original topics and styles! The PiTCH opened this week at Theater Mack in Auburn NY with Find Your Way Home, an “Irish Musical” about a trouble stricken family in 1910 Ireland. The show is full of emotional scenes, rollicking tunes, lilting melodies (there’s even bagpipes!), and is the perfect kick off to this year’s PiTCH season!

For the writers, this is the perfect opportunity to hear feedback from a real, live, un-biased audience. For the theatre-goer, this is the chance to help shape these new shows with your input. Come to the PiTCH and help influence the next generation of musicals!
