Ashland New Plays Festival is dedicated to bringing the best new plays to audiences in the Rogue Valley. We offer playwrights the unique opportunity to share new works with discerning audiences by providing them skilled directors and world-class actors under expert guidance from our artistic director and host playwright.
It is you—our members—who make it possible for us to continue our work.
Each year your membership provides support for our season by underwriting specific plays and the cost of facility rentals. Even more important, it allows us to provide stipends to the winning playwrights, actors, and directors, and to produce special performances throughout the year in addition to our flagship fall festival.
ANPF has become what Artistic Director Kyle Haden calls “an oasis for playwrights” and your support means we can continue to be a premiere new play incubator.

Ashland New Plays Festival is a labor of love—an art for art’s sake organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors in a wonderful community that lives and breathes theater.
We work year-round planning and organizing our October flagship festival and other events throughout the season. We have no endowment, foundation, or corporate financing. We depend on grants, local fundraising events, and membership donations from individuals like you.
All members and contributors are listed in our playbills to recognize their role as ANPF supporters. No donation is too large or too small, and all gifts are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Thank you for your support and becoming part of the ANPF community. We look forward to welcoming you at our events!
—ANPF Board of Directors
