How can I get more
information about the artists?
Join us for the pre-concert talks prior to many of our concerts. This free discussion is held inside the theatre with topics ranging from background on the artist to history of the art form. Check out show pages for further artist information, videos, music, and more.
What should I wear?
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 for attendees, but please avoid strong scents that may bother fellow concert-goers. There is a coat check available in the lobby.
What if I need special
Patrons who require special assistance, sign language interpretation, or other services are encouraged to make arrangements at least three weeks before the performance by calling 263-2787 (TTY: 263-2717). Infrared headsets are available for use in all theatres. A deposit or identification is required.
Who are the ushers?
Your ushers are members of a volunteer program that has served Anchorage patrons since 1984. If you have questions or comments about “Ushering in the Arts” or are interested in being a volunteer, please call the ACPA at 263-2920.
Should my child come to
Performances presented by Anchorage Concert Association are usually suitable for children age six and older. However, it is up to each parent to research and determine if the content is appropriate for their child. We do request that out of courtesy for others, concert-goers refrain from bringing babes-in-arms to the theater. Everyone entering the concert hall must have a ticket, regardless of age. If a child disrupts a performance, you may be asked to leave the concert hall.
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. To ensure your promptness, please check the start time on your tickets.
Can I text or take a
photo during the show?
Photographic or recording devices are not permitted in the theater for most shows. Flash cameras are both inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous to the artists. Please turn all cell phones to the silent mode and refrain from using Bluetooth headsets and texting during the performance. Additionally, please save your tweets and Facebook updates until intermission or after the performance.
What if I can’t make it
to a show?
