Perseverance Theatres mission is to create professional theatre by and for Alaskans. We value community engagement, professional rigor, and regional voice.

Founder: Molly Smith: The Theatre was founded in 1979 by Molly Smith as a theatre by, for and about Alaskans and today is led by Executive Artistic Director Art Rotch. Perseverance was born in Juneauthe states capital and a community of 30,000 that is only accessible by plane or boat.

Current Artistic Director: Art Rotch
Now into our fourth decade, weve grown into the states flagship professional theatre, serving nearly 15,000 artists and audiences annually with classical, contemporary, and world premiere productions on our main and second stages; education and training programs for youth and adults; statewide and national tours; and outreach collaborations with statewide artistic and social service groups. Perseverance Theatre is the resident theatre at the University of Alaska Southeast. Perseverance recently launched a subscription season in Anchorage.

Were a 501(C)(3) organization overseen by a thirteen member board of community members, professionals and artists. Our annual budget is comprised of a diversified funding base including the City of Juneau, the State of Alaska, and the NEA; foundation supporters including Shubert, Andrew W. Mellon, Rasmuson, and the Paul G. Allen Family; national corporations including ExxonMobil and BP Exploration; as well as the generous support of Juneau businesses and individuals. In 2002, Perseverance Theatre was awarded a $500,000 endowment challenge grant by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation through their Leading National Theaters Program. In 2006 we completed our endowment campaign in addition to a $1.1 million facility expansion project.
