Perfect Pitch develops shows through a series of workshops, readings, showcases and production opportunities in collaboration and in partnership with theatre and non-theatre organisations around the UK. Perfect Pitch have been running for the last five years and during that time have had a good degree of success with productions of shows they’ve developed being produced around the UK and in the US, Europe and Korea. Such musicals include Departure Lounge by Dougal Irvine, which was nominated for BEST NEW MUSICAL 2011 in the Whatsonstage Awards and The Go-Between by Richard Taylor and David Wood which is part of this year’s Autumn season at West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Royal and Derngate and Derby Live.
