Imagine sitting in an intimate, cabaret-style theater in the early 1940s, sipping a glass of wine, watching Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein and Agnes de Mille present a workshop of OKLAHOMA! Imagine being able to give direct feedback to those Broadway giants that would prove vital to the development of their show.
Now imagine doing that today, with the next generation of composers, writers, and lyricists.
Welcome to The PiTCH.
The PiTCH provides a forum for musicals in development and offers audiences a very unique theatrical experience: the chance to witness and participate in the development of a brand new musical. Musicals are selected from a pool of applicants each year. Each musical creative team is provided with a week-long residency at the Festival, located in Auburn, N.Y.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of each week, the creative team ‘pitches’ their material to audiences in our 80-seat converted carriage house, Theater Mack – behind the Cayuga Museum. These works-in-progress are not fully staged productions. Rather, the writers themselves deliver a condensed presentation of their new musicals, which may include scenes, songs, and choreography. Each presentation is approximately an hour long.
Afterward, the audience and creative team engage in active dialogue about the piece and the process. Audiences are encouraged to provide their thoughts and opinions. This experience affords each creative team the ability to consider feedback and gain valuable insight into their show-in-development.
