I felt fortunate to be able to witness all those years of his labor culminate in this emotional viewing of the Northern lights. It's a great way to experience the Northern Lights during... More

Great venue right in the heart of Anchorage's downtown, been here two times for the Orchestra & Memphis. The ushers did a good job to make sure the spectators enjoying their shows. Dont like their policy on any baby/infant would need a ticket to accompany their parents.

Anchorage has several community theaters, university and high school productions--all of which produce quality entertainment. The Center for the Performing Arts has several theaters in it--it is well run and a fabulous place as far as acoustics, sight lines, and many traveling shows make a stop here. Have seen "Fiddler" "West Side Story" "Jesus Christ Superstar" and other performances here.
