Blackboard Plays is partnering with Parent Artist Advocacy League (PAAL) to promote a platform for Black Playwrights who tell stories about Black Families. Black Motherhood & Parenting New Play Festival is in the process of finalizing our playwright submissions. Play finalists will be selected and will have a week long development workshop during Fall 2023. Additionally each show will rehearse, be virtually captured and be streamed in 2024.
We are seeking performers for both the development workshop and production for this upcoming BMPFest season. Please note, these will be separate contracts. Actors cast in the workshops might not be cast for the 2024 productions.
Development Workshop: Actors will receive a $150 stipend
Virtual Play Productions (2024 Rehearsal/Captures): Actors will receive a $300 stipend
BMPFest supports the full spectrum of identities for performing artists. Actors of all ethnicities, physical abilities, sizes, ages and gender identities, as well as performers with disabilities, are encouraged to apply.
