We're luck to have the PAC and to have the artists and shows that come... the plays, the operas, the symphony. If you don't KNOW the PAC, be sure and look at the map. IF you don't, you may end up to close or too far, depending on what you're attending. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be difficult to talk to... More

The PAC is the nicest theatre venue in Alaska, and hosts dozens of shows annually. It's a nice facility overall, though it lacks many of the little touches that venues in New York, Seattle, or Los Angeles has (for instance, "box seating" consists of mediocre chairs along the side wall in a space that is otherwise open to the world...

Aside from the busy carpet which can make one dizzy, the acoustics are fabulous. Wonderful Broodway productions, excellent family shows, supurb concerts. I always feel appreciated as a patron.

The ACP brings a good variety of shows to Anchorage. Though I would love to see more Broadway shows, they do a good job of bringing culture to Alaska and usually manage to get a few good Broadway hits and lots of other events to Anchorage each year.

There is always something going on that spikes the interest of the residents that live here. The performances are getting better and better as the years move along and the school performances are very commendable as it gives all students the opportunity... More

We went to the Aurora Show one afternoon. It was excellent. Photographer Dave Parkhurst spent years collecting thousands of pictures of the Aurora Borealis; these are his best.
