Yes, A-Ca And: How to Be Your Own Musical Director!

  • Un-Scripted Theater Company 533 Sutter Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

The biggest obstacle for music improv is finding someone to back you up. If you know how to create your own sound, it won’t be! Join LA-based musical improv team Pitch, Please for an a cappella workshop, and learn how to be your own musical director. Participants will learn how to find a soundscape for a scene, practice beat box skills and "earning your song." It’ll be a-ca awesome!

Pitch, Please! creates a fully improvised, a cappella, one-act musical out of thin air. Armed with a single suggestion from the audience, Pitch, Please! delves into scenes, songs, dance breaks, heartbreaks and character breaks all without the help of a piano. When it comes time to sing, the improvisers on stage create all the accompaniment they need with their own vocal cords, laying down bass lines, melodies, harmonies, ooo’s, ahhhhhh’s, and beats on the spot. If you liked Pitch Perfect, you’ll love Pitch, Please! If you hated Pitch Perfect, your opinion is wrong.

Make sure to also check out their show with Bookends: A Musical Journey at the West Coast Musical Improv Festival on Saturday, July 21st at 7:00 pm!
