Accessibility at Anchorage Community Theatre

ACT’s mission to Build Community Through Theatre has guided us since our establishment in 1953. We produce a season of five mainstage plays a year featuring the work of actors, designers, and technicians with a wide range of theatrical experience. Additionally, our outreach department provides theatre classes and performance opportunities to community members who otherwise may not have any access to theatre.

Now in our 65th season, ACT is committed to bridging the gap between our mainstage plays and our outreach program. Participants of all abilities, from all walks of life, are encouraged to audition for our shows and volunteer backstage. 
ACT believes theatre is for everyone — regardless of physical or intellectual ability. If you or someone in your life faces access challenges and wants to be involved in theatre, we hope you keep ACT in mind.

If you have questions or suggestions about accessibility at ACT, we welcome you to get in touch with Associate Director Colby Bleicher at or by calling 907-344-4713. There is lots of work to be done to make the arts accessible to all, and we value your feedback.
