So You Want To Pitch A Play...

Any member of DRAMAC is welcome to pitch a play to the society, but generally speaking, it is a good idea to have a well thought out presentation, which should include the following:

  • The name of the play
  • A brief summary of the play
  • Length of show
  • Cast size
  • Gender split (how many male and female roles)
  • Members of your production team
  • Does the show require rights? If so, how much will they cost, and have you secured/are you able to secure them?
  • If student written, an accurate representation of the level of completion of the script. 100% is usually better than 0%.
  • Any consideration you may have given to lighting design, set design, sound, costuming etc.
  • A preliminary budget for the show
If you are planning on pitching a play, it is important that you attend the appropriate General Meeting, and are on time. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can get any other member of the society to pitch a show for you in your absence. A production team is not required prior to pitching, though it is strongly recommended. The society is ready and willing to help you assemble a team for your show, if it is voted in.

You will have 10 minutes to pitch for full spots, 5 minutes for half spots and 3-4 minutes for multi spot shows.

If you have any other questions regarding pitching, please contact
