Perseverance Theatre postpones fun home

Perseverance Theatre is postponing a play that was planned to open later this month.

“Fun Home,” which is based on a graphic memoir by Alison Bechdel, will not be performed as scheduled, the theater announced Tuesday. The decision was made because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The theater is exploring the possibility to bringing the show to people remotely and are hoping to bring “Fun Home” to the Douglas Island stage in the fall, according to the email signed by Perseverance Theatre artistic director Leslie Ishii and managing director Frank Delaney announcing the decision to postpone the show.

People who have already purchased tickets should have been contacted by email about options available to them and the Perseverance Theatre box office will reach out to people in the coming weeks, according to the theater.

Additionally, the email solicited donations in light of lost ticket revenue.

Donations can be made online at ptalaska.org/donate-now/.
