Theatre NOVA Internships are available!

Are you a student, an early-career theatre professional, or just someone who wants an immersive experience in the world of professional theatre? Try an internship with Ann Arbor's resident professional theatre company. Theatre NOVA interns assist in rehearsal, in the shop, in the office, and in the booth. Internships are non-paid positions.



We held general auditions in the summer of 2019. Callbacks were held for each production of our 2019/20 season, and the season is cast. Three shows were postponed from that season, and we will present them once we are able to open up safely. To get the most current information on future auditions, sign up for newsletters at encoremichigan.com where we will post any upcoming auditions.


Script Submissions
Play of the Month Zoom Play Series

Due to the success of our Zoom Play Series Festival that ran October 7-11, 2020, and in keeping with our mission to raise awareness of the value and excitement of new plays and playwrights, Theatre NOVA announces a call for submissions for their new PLAY OF THE MONTH Zoom Play Series featuring short plays 20-40 minutes in length that employ two to four actors. The series will begin in January and feature one new short play each month through April. As this series is being underwritten by an anonymous donor, playwrights and actors will be compensated for their work.

The successful submission will be one that is written specifically for Zoom, in that the characters are forced or compelled to interact via Zoom for whatever reason. We are also looking for plays that are 20-40 minutes long and employ two to four actors. As always, we seek plays that are innovative and thought-provoking. Plays that offer something new and stimulating, are relevant, fun, and always respect the intellect of our audience.

Those interested in submitting plays for consideration should send 20-40 minute scripts in PDF format to TheatreNovaPlaySubmissions@gmail.com with “20-40 minute Zoom Play Submission” and the play title in the subject line. Included in the e-mail should be the playwright’s name, address, phone, and a short synopsis of the play. Playwrights may submit their play for consideration at any time but the earlier submissions will get the most consideration for filling the four open slots.

Full-length Plays for Mainstage Season

We accept full-length scripts for consideration in the season on a rolling basis. If you would like to submit, please email your entire script in PDF format (no snail mail submissions, please) along with contact info (Name, address, email and phone) to A2TheatreNova@gmail.com.

Please title emails: Script submission: (Last Name, First Name)


Michigan Playwrights Festivals

Prior to shutdown, we had already chosen the plays we were going to present in our 2020 Michigan Playwright Spring Festival and our 2020 Fall Festival. A new call for submissions for Michigan playwrights once we have been able to present those nine plays. But, no new submissions for Michigan Playwrights Festivals will be accepted until that time.
