Anchorage Plays, Performances & Entertainment
Plays & Performances
Every now and then in Alaska — where the weather can change quickly — a great indoor activity comes in handy. But this unique year-round attraction, where a family or a group of friends solves a mystery while “locked” indoors, makes a fun diversion even when the skies are clear outside.
From local plays to Shakespearean theatre, symphonies to jazz, spelling bees to whale tales, the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts hosts productions year-round in their multiple venues.
Today, the ACA is the largest performing arts presenter in Alaska: it’s the only organization that presents Broadway shows in the state, and it’s the largest resident company that uses the city’s Alaska Center for the Performing Arts (known to locals as the PAC), home to both the Atwood Concert Hall and the Discovery Theatre.
Even in the endless daylight of Alaska’s summer, you can check out the aurora borealis in “AurorA — Alaska’s Great Northern Lights.”
