SING TANK PITCH DAY ON FACEBOOK LIVE

The first phase of #THEatreACCELERATOR program culminates in a live Shark-Tank-style pitch session where participants present their shows to theatre and tech industry veterans including BroadwayWorld.com’s Robert Diamond, Broadway Producer Deborah Taylor Barrera, The Philanthropy Workshop’s CEO Renee Kaplan, Investor and Producer Frank Kavanaugh, Investor Jonathan Ledden, On Second Thought’s CEO Maci Peterson, and Producer and Writer Tegan Summer.

This supportive, dynamic pitchfest provides valuable feedback which guides the shows towards the next step in their trajectory. Wonder how to talk about a show you have in development? Want to get a sense of what pitching a show looks like? Just really love to cheer on new musical theatre?
