Play Synopsis

Summarize the plot of the play you are pitching: you may want to include particular themes, characters and major plot points.

Directorial Interpretation

Give us an idea of your view of the play. (If relevant,) what makes it different to other performances of the script? You may want to write about genre, themes, rehearsal methods, etc. Don't be afraid to be wanky... but don't feel you have to be!

Number of Cast

Total (Male/female/flexible)

Breakdown of characters

Technical requirements

A little about the space you wish to use, set you intend to have made,or any unusual or interesting lighting or sound features. It may be useful to have a few sketches or pictures of set ideas or costumes – although this is not essential! However, if setting your play in a particular period or style, it will help to create a visual idea of what you are talking about.

Producing, marketing & publicity

Give a brief overview production-y stuff. Style of costumes, any particularly tricky props and how you're going to overcome that, and how you are going to get audiences to see this show. Timelines of when you plan to sort stuff by are cool but by no means essential.

Why this show?

A short pitch of why this show is something Theatre Group should be interested in doing, why actors would want to audition, and audience want to come and see it. You might want to consider the show slot you are pitching for.

Appendices

Anything you haven't managed to fit in above - diagrams, proposed rehearsal schedules, whatever you want.
