The main stage performing season consists of six productions between September and May, annually. Each production has a three-weekend run of performances for our community audiences. Additionally, each summer, we produce THE DRAMA PROJECT – a professional theatre training program for children and young people during June and August featuring a staff of professional theatre educators.

We saw Blithe Spirit and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The theater had a small group feel, was very comfortable, and the play was fun. It's amazing that it is totally supported by volunteers. Will definitely come again.

High energy ensemble productions with local talent for actors mostly but very experienced staff. Treats at intermission and you can greet each cast member afterwards. Makes a nice night out for locals and visitors.

The quality of dramatic presentations by FDA is one of the reasons Fairbanks residents want to live here. Every month the staff and volunteers offer wonderful drama to our community. In addition, they have incredible classes for children during the summer. What a resource!!
