In spring 2020, out of concern and respect for the communities we serve, Perseverance postponed the production of Fun Home pursuant to recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Alaska Department of Health & Social Services relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since that time, Perseverance has pivoted and provided theatrical, educational, and community-engagement programming through a variety of online platforms. These have included Live Video Theatre, prerecorded virtual productions through Broadway on Demand, and fundraising and community-engagement events on Streamyard. Perseverance is delighted with the expansion and enhancement of our programming capability that has come with the need to create and present online, but we remain committed to returning to live, in-person theatre as soon as possible.

Perseverance has been actively monitoring both COVID-19 infection rates and the continuing progress Alaska is making on vaccinating the population. This information is essential to the planning processes underway to ensure that the choices Perseverance Theatre makes for the return to live, in-person theatre will result in safe, artistically meritorious, and well-received, successful productions.

Rest assured, Perseverance is monitoring all CBJ, State of Alaska, and US Government health and safety assessments, and will comply with all recommended best practices to ensure the safety and health of our staff, audiences, supporters, and participants in all activities undertaken and sponsored by the theatre.

Perseverance will soon be announcing the 2021-2022 season, and the ways in which you will be able to enjoy theatrical and educational opportunities in the near future. Perseverance continues to rely on the generous financial support from Individual Donors, Businesses & Corporations, Foundations, and Government. The coming season will depend on continuing investment from these tried and true sources, and Perseverance expresses deep gratitude for all those whose investments have enabled the theatre to survive the pandemic.
