"We are very fortunate to find such a capable leader who is also an Alaskan arts administrator with experience working at Perseverance Theatre," said Art Rotch, chair of the search committee and the theatre's new Artistic Director. "I met Elizabeth when I came to Juneau twenty years ago, and know her to be highly intelligent, well-organized, great with people in all situations, and an eloquently outspoken advocate for the arts. I am as happy as can be to partner with her as we move into the theatre's fourth decade."
Said Davis: "I am thrilled to be returning to Juneau, my hometown, and to be returning to Perseverance Theatre, a place that has supported and encouraged me in my journey as an artist since I was a teenager. While living in London, England the last two years I have become more Alaskan than ever before; living elsewhere reaffirmed why being Alaskan is important to who I am as person, a mom, and, most importantly, as an artist. Alaskans are adventurous, Alaskans are connected to the land and water, and Alaskans have a strong sense of community. I want to be a part of bringing this vitality to the stage, working with both the established and the new creators of Alaskan Theatre.
