TRU opp to pitch your work to producers! Deadline: 2/16 (NYC)

TRU Writer-Producer Speed Date (The Art of the Pitch)

No, it's not really a "date." It's a quick way to meet over a dozen producers - from beginner to Broadway level - and practice your pitching skills. (No, we're not talkin' baseball.)

Sunday evening March 1st at 5:30 and 6:30pm
The Players Theatre
115 Macdougal Street (below West 3rd)

You meet a producer at a party, and have two minutes to interest him in your work. Do you have the skill to sell yourself? Here's a chance to practice your pitching with real producers who are open to and looking for new work:

Paul Adams, of Emerging Artists Theatre
Jane Dubin, commercial producer
Anthony Francavilla, showcase, Fringe and festival producer
Roger Alan Gindi, Broadway/off-Broadway producer and general manager
