Cast List for:

Black Playwrights' Festival

Congratulations on being offered a role in the Black Playwrights' Festival!

The plays will be:
A Funeral for My Friend by Kayla Bey
J-Walk: The Musical by Rave Andrews and Madison Valley
Under Control by Chinyere Obasi

Once again, the team of BPF cannot contact you once cast lists go out; you must contact us with any questions you have on signing/doing two shows/etc.

If you were a first choice in two shows within the festival and only want to do one of them, sign up for the role and email us with the clarification. If you were an alternate for such a role and you take it, contact us for a meeting regardless.

If you are cast in multiple shows (BPF and something else) and wish to participate in both/all of them, you MUST reach out to the stage managers of those shows and to the BPF team before signing.

Any questions/comments/concerns can be directed to the show contact email below, or to the playwrights' emails:

(If you read for the musical Tapes and are still interested, there is a chance it will be presented at a different festival on campus this fall. Stay tuned and/or email [email protected] for more information)
