MOJOAA Auditions 19-20.png

Audition for our 6th season!

Featuring our annual production of Escape to Freedom, a regional premiere about two Black women healing hairdos, hearts and holding down their changing community and a world premiere of a smoking hot show about BBQ and brotherhood. Not to mention our staged reading series. There are many roles to go around!


MOJOAA Performing Arts Company invites Black playwrights/playwrights of the African diaspora that are writing primarily in English to submit short plays, monologues, one acts and full length plays. We are not accepting musicals at this time.

Shorts and monologues will be considered for our monthly staged reading film series. Every month from September to June we will release a filmed staged reading of a short play or monologue (10 pages or less). Audio of post reading discussion among cast can be made available to the playwright.

One act and full length plays will be considered for full production in our season. Playwrights will be compensated if their work is chosen for full production and can be in communication with the cast and director throughout the process. 

Playwrights retain full rights of their piece throughout the process. MOJOAA Performing Arts Company will not produce work without the express permission of the playwright. We will not share submitted works without the permission of the playwright. There is no deadline but we make decisions about our season in May and we choose work for the staged readings bi-annually in the summer and the winter.
