You’ve written a great musical….now what? How do you get producers to give your musical a look? What do you need before you’re ready to approach producers and theatres?
This six-session Boot Camp is designed to get you up and running in about a month and a half. (One session a week.) You can complete the Boot Camp faster if you like…but not slower. You can start any time you like, but once you do start, there’s no procrastinating. New Musicals Inc.’s Executive Director Scott Guy will put your feet to the fire as you complete and polish the following, all of which you’ll want:
One-sentence elevator pitch
One-minute pique pitch
Five-minute hook pitch
100 word synopsis
Wall-street paragraph pitch
song-synopsis (“record jacket”)
You’ll also get all the knowledge and materials you need to prepare:
a successful demo (how many songs? how well produced?)
website to present your musical
a targeted list of producers and theatres to approach
secondary targets: festivals, workshops, contests
a timetable of your next steps
Here’s how it will work:
Session One: Planning Ahead
This session is all online. A pre-taped lecture, introducing you to the syllabus, the worksheets, and a list of things to do/write before your next session.
Session Two: Taking Stock
A one-on-one session with Scott (one hour via teleconference), going over your preliminary pitches and half-page synopsis. Discussion about demographic and spin. Goals and timetable for demo, website, launch of pitch campaign.
Session Three: Polishing Materials
Teleconference (half hour) with Scott, discussing your 100-word synopsis, Wall Street synopsis, elevator pitch. Review/reiterate your theme and demographic.
Session Four: Practice Pitch
Pitch to Scott. Tips, tricks, feedback. The query letter. Half-hour teleconference.
Session Five: Marketing Campaign
One hour teleconference with Scott, reviewing timetable and targeted producers/theatres. Realistic goals and next steps. Final practice pitch.
Session Six: Follow-Up
2-3 months after you’ve launched your campaign, you’ll have a follow-up half-hour teleconference with Scott to determine what’s working and what’s not; how are producers responding to you and your musical…what steps of your campaign warrant revising?
Regular price of $595 includes all six sessions, five teleconferences, handouts, worksheets and pre-taped lectures. Early Registrants for the BIZ OF THE BIZ Conference receive $100 off this price.
