Perseverance Theatre (PT) is a multi-city regional theatre serving both Juneau and Anchorage, Alaska. PT's mission is to create professional theatre by and for Alaskans. PT values community engagement, professional rigor, and regional voice.
The Theatre was founded in 1979 by Molly Smith as a theatre by, for and about Alaskans and today is led by Executive Artistic Director Art Rotch. PT was born in Juneau-the state's capital and a community of 30,000 that is only accessible by plane or boat. Thirty years later, PT has grown into the state's flagship professional theatre, serving artists and audiences annually with classical, contemporary, and world premiere productions; education and training programs for youth and adults; statewide and nationals tours; and outreach collaborations with statewide artistic and social service groups. Beginning in 2012 PT began performing seasons as a Resident Company at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts in Anchorage. For more information visit http://www.perseverancetheatre.org
