Summarize the plot of the play you are pitching: you maywant to include particular themes, characters and major plot points.
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!
Is there any content in the show that auditionees should be made aware of? (Anything from a necessary romantic kiss upwards.)

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.
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.
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.
A budget should describe the planned costs and predicted income to show that the pitch is financially viable. If you have an Excel spreadsheet you can upload it here. If you have written your budget in an online cloud platform such as Google Docs then please include a link in the Fundraising Plan question below.
If pitching for Edinburgh play then please provide a timeline with a fundraising plan to raise the money to fund the show. If you have any questions please email the Tours Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org
