BIZ of the MUSICAL THEATRE BIZ Conference 2018
July 27, 28, 29
New Musicals Inc.
PITCH, PITCH, PITCH!
NMI's seventh national conference for musical theatre bookwriters, lyricists, and composers will be three jam-packed days of insiders' tips about finding and approaching producers. Held at NMI's newly-renovated facilities in North Hollywood July 27, 28 and 29.
Join us in the musical theatre trenches, practicing, polishing and perfecting your pitch. Hear first-hand from writers and producers about epic fails and successes. Fantastic networking as you'll be joined live and online by fellow writers as well as producers from all over the country, representing regional, commercial, and touring theatres of every size and taste.
Every conference registrant will be eligible to have one musical included in our complete pitch catalogue which we'll send to nearly 100 producers across the country two weeks after the conference.
We're also offering an additional optional add-on: a personal five-session PITCH Boot Camp leading up to the conference in which NMI's Executive Director will guide you and make you hit deadlines for your pitch materials; with a final follow-up session after the conference for individual advice on targeted marketing.
(The schedule of panels is subject to change.)

The 2018 Conference will take place back home at NMI in North Hollywood so we can take advantage of our newly updated Main Hall.

WHERE TO GO FOR DINNER ON SATURDAY:
Perfect, the sandwich shop across the street (in the strip mall on the NW corner of Burbank and Vineland), has nice fresh sandwiches and fairly good coffee. We also refer to this as the Carpuccino Store (check out their neon sign and you will see why.)
Robina’s is an Indian restaurant, located just east of Vineland on the north side of Burbank Blvd.
Hyatt’s Kitchen is an excellent (small) middle Eastern restaurant and is located tucked away in the far corner of the strip mall on the NW corner of Burbank and Vineland.
There are several Mexican restaurants and an Asian noodle restaurant on the adjacent corners, and a 7-11 and McDonald’s just west of here on Burbank Blvd.
Circus Liquor (you DID see the big clown, didn’t you?) is what you would expect.
A little further away - around the corner of Magnolia and Lankershim, there a lot of more upscale restaurants, including:
The Eclectic Cafe
