Where to direct your donation

The Roulston Roy New Play Development Fund

A new play demands endless attention before it debuts on stage. Gifts to New Play Development help fund this process, and ensure that playwrights receive the necessary artistic support to prepare new scripts for full-fledged production at producing theatres.

The Young Company

The Young Company offers area youth the opportunity to collectively develop and present a new work under professional direction. Gifts to the Young Company allow the Blyth Festival to present this rare opportunity at no cost to participants.

Sheila Richards Memorial Capital Fund

 Sheila Richards was a volunteer with Blyth Festival from 1978-1994. She was President of the Board of Directors in 1979-1980, and 1985. She was a visionary in her insistence that money be raised to pruchase items that would enhance our patron’s experience. It was from her passion, dedication, and tireless work for that this fund was formed. Gifts donated to this fund will help carry on this tradition.
