We are thrilled to present our second Perseverance People Power Concert of the season! These concerts are meant to connect and activate our community in this time of social distancing. There is power, strength, and resilience in community.

Ticketing for all of our programming this year is in designated pay-as-you-can amounts. We think theatre and music should be accessible for all, but like many arts organizations, the current circumstances are challenging. Pay-as-you-can pricing means that those who can pay more have that option, and those who can’t are still able to see the show.

Born and raised in Arizona, Witty Youngman moved to Alaska in 2014 after graduating college in Kansas. She’s been playing guitar since she was 14 and singing since she was a kid in her grandma’s shadow. You can find her original music at or searching online for Witty Youngman.

Annie Bartholomew is an Alaskan songwriter and audio storyteller from Juneau. She is the recipient of a 2020 Rasmuson Project Award to record her album of songs inspired by narratives of women during the Klondike Gold Rush. Annie plays traditional folk guitar and clawhammer banjo, and her collaborative music ensembles can be heard at the Alaska Folk Festival every April. She was the March 2019 artist in residence through the Yukon Arts Centre’s Jenni House Residency in Whitehorse and was awarded the Alaska Historical Society’s Emerging Professional/Student travel scholarship to present her work at their 2019 conference in Kodiak. Annie is working with Theater Alaska to develop her historical songwriting project, Sisters of White Chapel, into a stage show and bring this history to new audiences.
