Perseverance Theatre and A.C.T. present a virtual performance of Madhuri Shekar’s In Love and Warcraft. College senior Evie prefers the online role-playing game World of Warcraft to real life. In the game, she’s a fearless warrior with a boyfriend. In real life, she ghostwrites love letters for people, even though she’s never been in love. When Evie becomes attracted to her client Raul, she must decide whether to let her powerful and sexy warrior character out in the real world. Directed by Peter J. Kuo and featuring students from A.C.T.’s Master of Fine Arts program, In Love and Warcraft is a cosplay-loving romantic comedy about intimacy and love in the digital age.
Written and Directed by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse
On a family vacation to their cabin nestled in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, Tlingit twins Kaash and Shaa find themselves on the adventure of a lifetime! Suddenly separated from their family and from each other, they have to figure out how to reunite and above all, how to save the valley that they love so dearly. Join these clever kids on their journey as they face ferocious Wolves, rap battle the fast-talking Raven, reason with the dramatic Bear, and search for the elusive Spirit of the Valley. This show is fun for the whole family and asks the important question, “What can you do to protect the magnificent land and nature that surrounds you?”
The Spirit of the Valley by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse will be live-streamed November 6-15.

A Christmas Carol just got a lot more Tlingit! We’ve all heard the classic story: it’s Christmas, there are spirits involved, a grumpy man says “Bah Humbug…” But what would happen if that story took place right here, right now in southeast Alaska? E.B. Scrooge is a successful, wealthy business person, but he’s not the nicest guy in town. In fact, most of the time, he’s downright mean. Can he learn to become a better person? Can he avoid the same tragic fate as his old friend Marley? Carol your way through this holiday classic, with a very Tlingit twist!
A Tlingit Christmas Carol by Vera Starbard will be released in streamed staves at 7 p.m. on November 27, December 4, 11, & 18, and at 10 a.m. on December 25, Christmas Day. After they are released, all staves will be available on demand through Russian Orthodox Christmas, Thursday, January 7
