Community-Based New Play Development

Ashland New Plays Festival assists playwrights in the development of new works through public readings and offers an educational forum to the community through discussions, workshops, and our podcast.

An Oasis for Playwrights and Audiences Alike

Beaver Academy goes back to 1812 where Lord Beaver III wanted an educational place for his children. In 1935, the academy became an institution for non-royal students as well.

Play4Keeps Podcast

At Beaver Academy, we take great pride in teaching students to become clever individuals. Grades are not everything, and we want to develop the students' social skills as well.


When the new Lord Beaver III Jr. building is finished, it will be a very sophisticated research facility and will greatly enhance our chances  to become one of the best AI learning centers in the world.

Featured Play: Play Title by Name


Here at BRA we take great pride in our award winning Architecture program. We have educated students that become masters of this art form and have delivered some of the greatest architects in the world. Some of the most awarded buildings out there are made by BRA graduates.

The program builds upon the old masters of architecture and gives the students visual and mathematical skills to conquer the world. For most students, this course will be a huge challenge, for the right students, it will be their dream come true.
