The Spirit of the Valley
Written and directed by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse
Ticketing for The Spirit of the Valley is pay-as-you-can, with $12, $17, & $27 options available. We would like theatre to be accessible for all, but like many arts organizations, the current circumstances are challenging. Tiered pricing means that those who can pay more have that option, and those who can't are still able to see the show.
When you purchase a ticket, you will receive two emails, one with a receipt and one with the ticket link that will be posted in the middle of the email.

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?”
Running time is approximately 75 minutes.
We are thrilled to introduce Perseverance Everywhere, as we continue this unprecedented season. Most of our shows this year will be streamed as Live Video Theatre, and as such will be available around the state, the country, and the world! This is a fantastic solution for Perseverance to continue to bring you the magic of live theatre straight to the comfort and safety of your home. Just like with live, in-person theatre, shows will be performed in real time, but instead of gathering in our theatre to watch, we will bring the theatre to you. Productions will also be available for a limited time on-demand. Because of this new format, we are offering a membership program similar to Netflix or Hulu. Simply choose a package and pay a monthly fee to receive various streamed performances as well as other goodies from Perseverance Theatre. This is Perseverance Everywhere, and by purchasing a package, not only are you getting a great deal, you receive the added value of knowing you are helping professional, regional theatre in Alaska to sustain and thrive in these challenging and unprecedented times. Please read below for rates and descriptions of all that is included in each package.
