MUSICAL PITCH MEETING

Castro Country Club  4058 18th Street, SF 94114

THE PITCH

The Pitch meeting will be 2 hours in length. No more than 90 minutes will be allocated for pitches including Q&A. Pitches, in general, should be a ten minute presentation followed by Q&A. Time allotted for individual pitches is dependent on the number of scripts pitched. All voting participants and those pitching must be in attendance at the start of the meeting, and remain for all pitches.

VOTING

We invite and encourage all AA and Al-Anon members of the Living Sober community to attend and vote. Those pitching do not vote and will be asked to wait outside during the voting process, which will also include discussion among the voting participants. The winning script will be announced at the end of the all pitches.

GUIDELINES

Pitching participants please bring at least 10 copies of a written pitch consisting of the following:

  • A written, one paragraph, plot synopsis and its relationship to recovery (AA/Al-Anon)• A song list or overview of the music (i.e. genre, sources, etc.)
  • A cast list, broken out “demographically” (i.e. gender, program affiliations, ratio of principals to  ensemble, etc.)
  • Status of script (i.e. drafted, outlined, finished, in progress etc.) If not finished, a commitment to  complete by January 31, 2018.
  • Any specific technical requirements.

PITCH REQUESTS

Pitching participants must provide whatever electronic devices needed for their pitch (i.e. boom box, CD player, I-Pod, or the like).

FINAL REVIEW OF THE WINNING SCRIPT

The winning script is contingent upon review of the completed script by the Musical Subcommittee Co-Chairs and the Steering Committee.

Note: The Musical Subcommittee Co-Chairs may offer guidance/suggestions to the winning script to ensure the musical contains a recovery related message. For inquiries, please email us at musical@livingsober.org
