Perseverance Theatre's mission is to create professional theatre by and for Alaskans. We value community engagement, cross-cultural collaboration, professional rigor, and regional voice. The Theatre was founded in 1979 and has built a national reputation, producing a diverse season of classic and contemporary plays and musicals. Our programming includes:
- Mainstage season at our facility in Juneau
- Anchorage season at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts
- New play workshops, readings, and Black Box productions in our Phoenix Theatre (second space)
- Outstanding education and training programs for youth and adults
Perseverance has premiered dozens of new plays by writers from Alaska and beyond, including Devilfish, by Vera Starbard, Where the Summit Meets The Stars, by Frank Kaash Katasse. We serve hundreds of area students and their families with our popular STAR (summer youth acting program) and Spring Break drama camps, reduced-price school matinees, and other programs.
