Dear Stage Troupe, Out of consideration for concerns from the membership, the creative team of Avenue Q has decided to pull their show from the Spring 2017 Season.
This special circumstance means that we will be re-opening pitches for the third mainstage slot of the semester. While we understand that this is an unexpected change of plans, we nevertheless welcome prospective directors to jump into action. The deadline for pitches will be this coming Wednesday, December 21st. Please send your pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, AND firstname.lastname@example.org.
How will pitches work?
This is going to be a quick process, but the E-Board aims to make this selection as efficient and fair as possible. We would more than appreciate your help by taking part in Reading Committee! If you're interested in joining Reading Committee, please contact email@example.com by Wednesday, December 21st as well. Once Reading Committee is assigned, their reports and questions are to be finished by Saturday, December 24th @ 12PM. E-Board, having also taken part in the Committee, will review the reports and compile questions to ask the directors.
Do we get to vote?
Of course! Voting will take place through an online poll that we will release to the membership on Wednesday, December 28th. On the poll, there will be video clips of the directors pitching and answering Reading Committee questions all in one take. This will ensure that the pitching process is as similar to the usual GM format as possible. The membership will have 48 hours to hear the directors' visions and submit their vote for the final show.
There are a lot of technicalities to sort through during this process, but we want to be sure that we have the best season possible! If you have any questions regarding this process, please feel free to reach out to us. We look forward to hearing your pitches!
