About Us :

Perseverance Theatre (PT) is dedicated to "tapping the potential of Alaska through the passionate creation and presentation of theatre." This mission statement originates in our organizational values: engaging community, pursuing excellence, embracing risk, and seeking self-discovery.

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with an annual budget that has nearly doubled over the past five years to just over $1 million. In December 2002, we were one of just seven theatres nationwide to have been awarded a $500,000 endowment challenge grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation in New York, through their Leading National Theatres Program. We are also in the midst of a $1.1 million facility renovation and expansion project.

PT is a theater of place which places a special emphasis on working with Alaskan artists. We maintain a local resident acting company and training and development opportunities are an essential element of all our artistic operations. We are also committed to engaging artistic work which speaks directly to the Alaskan experience.
