SING TANK PITCH DAY ON FACEBOOK LIVE

The first phase of the program culminates in a live Shark-Tank-style pitch session where participants present their shows to theatre and tech industry veterans including artist/entrepreneur Randi Zuckerberg, Silicone Valley VC Jim Scheinman, Broadway Producer Deborah Taylor Barerra, Investor and Producer Frank Kavanaugh, Senior Executive and Private Investor Jonathan Ledden, and Technology Investor and Advisor Julia Popowitz.

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? Join us for our livestream by watching here or like our page on Facebook to watch on Facebook directly.
