In the 30 years since its inception, the Juneau-based Perseverance Theatre has established itself as Alaska’s premiere theater company. In addition to producing both classic and modern works on its two stages, PT offers many educational, training, and community programs, touring productions, and the Beyond Heritage Native Festival. They have produced dozens of world premieres, such as Greg Kotis and Mark Hollman’s Yeast Nation, and developed major works like Paula Vogel’s How I Learned To Drive. Perseverance Theatre’s offerings also reflect the cultural diversity and ethnic heritage of Alaska by producing works such as The Long Season (Chay Yew and Fabian Obispo’s musical about Filipino Alaksan cannery workers) and an adaptation of Macbeth set in the Southeast Alaska’s indigenous Tlingit culture.
