The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity
by Kristoffer Diaz
September 12 – October 7, 2017
Mace is the ring name of a Puerto Rican “jobber” paid to lose to the champion of his pro-wrestling league. Mace wants a break from losing, so he introduces his bosses to a friend he met playing basketball in Brooklyn. A botched job means a win for the new guy and embarrassment for the champ. Efforts to repair the damage get more and more complicated, leading Mace to look for just one true moment in his athletic career. Chad Deity is a funny and quirky look at the world of pro wrestling.


Dreaming Glacier Bay
by Joel Bennett
Directed by Michael Evan Haney
October 27 – November 19, 2017
*A World Premiere*
John Barrymore was the best known Hollywood actor of the 1930s with the largest yacht on the west coast. He could have travelled anywhere in the world, and he chose to visit an island in Southeast Alaska near Glacier Bay to spend time with a couple who had a fox farm and gold prospecting claim. What was his relationship with Muz Ibach–the woman choosing to live with her husband in the icy wilderness–and why did Barrymore return again and again to visit her? The play is a true story with a mystery at its heart.


Steel Magnolias
by Robert Harling
Directed by Carolyn Howarth
December 1 – 31, 2017
Longtime friends in a small Southern town fill Truvy’s hair salon with laughter, gossip, and tears. Truvy’s new assistant Annelle, sociable M’Lynn, and her pretty daughter bride-to-be Shelby, as well as the hysterical bickering Ouiser and Clairee, support each other with love, laughter and beauty products. As hair is dried, dyed, and styled, women’s lives unfold and show the meaning of true friendship.


William, Inc
by Lucas Rowley
Directed by Randy Reinholz
January 26 – February 18, 2018
*A World Premiere*
William is an Alaska Native professional with a high-pressure job and demands at home too. To cope with his stress, he has formed a Native corporation inside his head, but the strategy backfires when his board of directors get out of control and start hijacking his real life. Though it costs him a relapse and lots of problems at home, he negotiates his politics to find the balance he needs. Getting there is both affirming and hilarious.


Cyrano de Bergerac
by Edmund Rostand. Translated and adapted by David Grimm
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge
March 16 – April 15, 2018
*A World Premiere of this new adaptation.*
Cyrano de Bergerac–soldier, poet, and musician, is clever, charming, and disarming, but he’s ashamed of his appearance and believes he’ll never win the love of the beautiful Roxanne. To ensure her happiness, he helps his fellow soldier Christian to woo her. Panache–Cyrano’s word for living life with flair, honor, and eloquence–prevents Cyrano from ever telling Roxanne the truth about Christian and his own deep love for her, until it is too late. Panache undoubtedly killed Cyrano, but without it, he would not have found a life worth living in the first place.


The Arsonists
by Jacqueline Goldfinger
Directed by Art Rotch
May 11 – June 3, 2018
* A World Premiere *
After running out of a cloud of smoke and sirens with a large, slightly bloody bundle, a woman hides the package under the floorboards of her cabin, changes her clothes, and hides with the lights off until the sirens fade off in the distance. When the coast is clear, she sings songs with her father, packs for a long trip, and burns the cabin down to leave no evidence behind. Based in part on the myth of Electra, The Arsonists is the story of a woman who comes of age in the family arson business before an unexpected accident sends her out on her own.


Snow Child
A new roots-infused musical based on the bestselling novel by Eowyn Ivey
Book by John Strand, Music by Bob Banghart and Georgia Stitt, Lyrics by Georgia Stitt
Directed by Molly Smith
June 9-10, 2018
* A Co-Production with Arena Stage *
Eowyn Ivey’s debut novel The Snow Child, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, is reborn as a magical new musical that dances on the edge of legend. In the 1920s Alaskan wilderness, a couple reeling from the loss of an unborn child struggles to rebuild their lives. Everything changes suddenly when they are visited by a wild, mysterious girl who embodies the dark woods that surround their cabin. In this beautiful and violent land, things are rarely as they appear, and what the snow child teaches them will ultimately transform them all. Featuring a vibrant and haunting score that combines backcountry bluegrass and contemporary musical theatre, this world premiere musical is as evocative as the land it depicts.

A Christmas Carol
by Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney based on the book by Charles Dickens
December 15 – 29, 2017
Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s miraculous Christmas Eve transformation in Perseverance Theatre’s adaptation of Dickens’ famous book. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy businessman, with no place in his life for kindness, compassion, or charity, and destined to a lonely old age. But when four ghosts appear and warn him of a miserable afterlife, Scrooge is reminded of all the chances he had before to make different choices. Charles Dickens’ classic tale of redemption skillfully faithfully adapted by Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney never ceases to please.
