PITCH IN is a one-act STEAM youth-musical written with gender inclusivity and flexible cast sizes in mind. When a small-town middle school loses funding for its extracurricular activities, the Principal asks the students to pitch ideas to save their school. Following the Science Club, a Robotics super villain, and the Show Choir, we see the students navigate stage fright, sabotage, and new friendships as they learn what it really means to work as a team.
NOTE: We have intentionally given characters gender-neutral names to encourage creative casting for your unique community.
