Featured Event

The Ashland New Plays Festival celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. On October 14, they brought three actors to Mountain Meadows to read from three of the four plays which will be presented at the Festival this week. ANPF Artistic Director and actor, Kyle Hayden (center), and actors, Jeremy Gallard and Erin O'Connor read delightful excerpts and made the scenes come to life. Such amazing talent! All three are affiliated with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival which is a strong partner and advocate for the ANPF. 

The President of the ANPF Board, Jim Pagliasotti, opened the program with an overview of the mission of the organization which is "to assist playwrights in the development of new works through public readings, and to offer an educational forum to the community through discussions and workshops." 

He told us that four hundred new plays were read by a team of volunteer readers. From those, four plays were chosen: The Madres. by Stephanie Walker, Hazardous Materials by Beth Kander, Oberon Springs by Michael Erickson, and EdanEv by Mike Teele. The Festival opens this Wednesday evening  at 7:30 at the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Center, 87 4th Street here in Ashland. 

Attend and participate in this exciting project. Quoting from the ANPF website (www.ashlandnewplays.org): "The dramatic readings and the talkbacks that follow are a rich theatrical experience for audiences, and the guest playwrights look to our sophisticated playgoers for responses to their works as they evolve from the page to the stage. In those magical exchanges of feedback, audience comments may help turn a very good play into a masterpiece and encourage playwrights to continue their efforts in the challenging endeavor of bringing new works to the public."
