  • At the pitch session, please be prepared to tell us a summary of the show and why you think it is a good match for PSP.
  • Pitch Sessions will be at Pacifica Spindrift Players (1050 Crespi Drive, Pacifica, CA)
  • Please wait in the lobby until called into the Gallery to pitch your show idea(s)
  • If you cannot attend any of the pitch sessions, you may email your completed form only, but keep in mind that a personal pitch tends to make a stronger case for the show when being considered.

Show proposals will be considered and evaluated by the Artistic Board using the following unranked criteria:

  • Literary/artistic quality
  • Balance and variety in genre, style, and period (musical vs. play, comedy vs. drama)
  • Acting opportunities/challenges (including male/female ratio)
  • Design opportunities/challenges
  • Production scope/cost considerations
  • Educational value/audience development
  • Box office potential
  • Theatre calendar schedule
  • Special production requirements, i.e. additional rehearsal time, double casting, participation in special events
  • Main stage vs Blackbox

If you are interested in directing a show in the 2017-2018 Season, please fill out the Director Application form.
