Pitch Night 2018
March 5: 7pm
Every year Hatbox Theatre holds an annual Pitch Night for producers interested in being part of our upcoming season. Groups are given two minutes to pitch their project for the upcoming season (September through August) of Hatbox Theatre. Hatbox is all about live performance, so we ask that pitches be focused on that aspect, but any discipline is welcome to pitch: music, theatre, cabaret, dance, magic, variety, burlesque, comedy, improv, poetry/spoke word, game shows, whatever!
Producers are asked to fill out a detailed form and supply four bound submission packets (this might consist of: copies of a play with notes on the production team; sample audio/video recordings of a musical group; promotional material for the organization, etc.). The planning committee will take about a month to comb through the submissions, and select the ones that best fit the needs of the season. All groups selected for the season must: sign an agreement related to their production; commit to participating in the Launch Night where they will provide a five-minute taste (performance excerpt, readings, an expanded “pitch”, etc.) of their production for members of Hatbox Theatre and the public; take part in a producer orientation meeting; and participate in Hatbox auditions.
