PITCH PARTY Thursday, February 17th, 2022 Attendees vote at the actual event. Voting open to general public on this night only. ONLINE VOTING February 17th – March 10th Anybody who has volunteered on a BROS show is allowed to vote. The BROS Artistic Council is presenting PITCH PARTY THE 9TH, where the company will vote for the for the NEXT FULL-SCALE BROS production to be produced in Spring of 2024.
The BROS Artistic Council will review all pitches submitted on this form (open now and closing on 1/5/22) and decide which will be heard by the greater BROS community at this year’s PITCH PARTY. The pitch party will take place on February 17th at The Crown (1910 N. Charles St) The PITCH PARTY will be open to the public in order to continue our mission of engaging more with our greater Baltimore community. Voting happens at the actual pitch party and for a few weeks afterwards. All members of the BROS community are encouraged to vote for their favorite!
Pitches will be evaluated based on their strength of concept, originality, visual and musical aesthetic, their relationship and context to our past body of work, and just how excited they make us. Show pitches that are too similar to our recent work in genre, setting, or aesthetic are less likely to be selected to be in the Pitch Party (i.e. Glitterus ,a high fantasy epic, Love & Roar, a Kaiju rom-com, and Gold Night, a turn of the century folk tale about the Canadian gold rush will be the full-length shows leading up to this one). Because the collaborative development process is important to BROS we are not looking for already written and developed shows.
We encourage you to email email@example.com with any questions about your pitch. We’re happy to talk over email, give advice and context or set up a call with anybody interested in pitching a show!
