Ten plays in 10 weeks dramatize Anchorage history

A once-in-a-century theater project is set to run in downtown Anchorage this July through September at Cyrano’s Off Center Playhouse, 4th Avenue and D Street. “Anchorage: The First 100 Years – A Theatrical Tour,” will feature a different team of director and actors each week for 10 weeks, with each week covering a decade in Anchorage’s history.

Cyrano’s says its centennial celebration is a series of “living newspapers,” featuring the stories and colorful characters who helped shape Anchorage. The series will include authentic period music and film clips as it covers the city’s and state’s big events, and national issues from an Anchorage perspective from 1915-2015. Watch Seward’s folly grow, with news briefs from statehood to the Red Scare, from the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act to the pipeline and beyond.
