Security screening at the PAC
The PAC is implementing Evolv Express technology for weapon screening. Evolv Express is a touchless electronic security system using extremely low frequency radio waves (ELF) to detect weapons. Visitors pass through quickly without removing cell phones or other personal items. Please notify the security personnel upon arrival if you'd prefer special screening.
Patrons who require special assistance, sign language interpretation, or other services are encouraged to make arrangements at least three weeks before the performance by contacting the CenterTix box office at (907) 263-2787 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Infrared headsets are available for use in all theatres. A deposit or identification is required.
Discounted tickets for active duty military and veterans with base access are available on JBER at Information Tickets and Travel (aka ITT), located inside the Arctic Oasis, Bldg #9497, (907) 753-2378. Subject to availability.

What is a subscription?
A subscription is a great way to save money and get access to the best seats by purchasing any three or more shows at once through Anchorage Concert Association. Subscribers also get first access to next season's shows, flexible ticket exchanges during the season, and more. Subscription information can be found here.
How can I get more information about the artists?
Check out show pages for further artist information, videos, music, and more. You can also join pre-show talks prior to many shows. This free discussion is held inside the theatre with topics ranging from background on the artist to history of the art form.
Should my child come to the show?
We recommend that parents research each artist and show to determine if it's right for their family. We do request that out of courtesy for others, attendees refrain from bringing babes-in-arms to the theatre. Everyone entering the concert hall must have a ticket, regardless of age. Anyone who disrupts a performance may be asked to leave the theatre. Tips for bringing kids to the theatre.
What should I wear?
"Wear your joy," as our friends at the Portland Opera say. Denim and flannel, silk and diamonds—you will find both, and everything in between, at an Anchorage Concert Association event. Wear whatever makes you comfortable. There is no dress code, but please avoid strong scents that may bother fellow attendees. There is a coat check available in the lobby October-April.
What if I need special help?
Patrons who need special assistance, sign language interpretation, or other services are encouraged to make arrangements at least three weeks before the performance by contacting CenterTix at (907) 263-2787 or email@example.com. Infrared headsets are available for use in all theatres. A deposit or identification is required.
Do you need volunteers at shows?
Anchorage Concert Association is always looking for volunteers! These volunteers meet artists at the airport, provide backstage hospitality, greet students at school events, hang posters around town, run the annual Nutcracker store, and much more. Benefits include having your name listed in show programs, invitations to special events, and earning tickets to select shows after accruing a certain number of volunteer hours. Learn more & sign up
Who are the ushers?
Ushers are members of a volunteer program coordinated by the PAC. If you have questions or comments about “Ushering in the Arts” or are interested in becoming an usher, please call the PAC at 907-263-2921.
What if I arrive late?
Latecomers are invited to watch the performance on video monitors until an appropriate break in the performance. Late seating times are determined by the artists in an effort to cause as little disturbance to the performance as possible for both the artist and audience members. Please check the time on your tickets to ensure you arrive promptly.
Can I text or take a photo during the show?
Photographic or recording devices are not permitted at most shows. Flash cameras and bright screens are both inconsiderate to other attendees and sometimes dangerous to the artists. Please silence all devices and put them away during the performance. Additionally, please save any texts or social media updates until intermission or after the performance.
Donate: By donating your tickets to Anchorage Concert Association, you make a seat available to those who might otherwise miss a performance. We cannot issue cash refunds for unused tickets, but we will gladly offer you a tax receipt for your in-kind contribution. To donate your tickets, please call the CenterTix Box Office at (907) 263-2787.
How do I get invited to a house concert or other special events?
