Fall 2019 Cohort

Sing Tank

#THEatreACCELERATOR culminates in a live Shark-Tank-style pitch session where participants present their shows to theatre and tech industry veterans.

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?
