Our Mission

The Valdez Last Frontier Theatre Conference strives to create an educational experience for playwrights, actors, directors, and theatre enthusiasts that enriches participants’ minds and inspires their souls. Participants are completely immersed in the theatre arts for seven days, with a blend of performances, developmental readings, classes, and social events.

The Conference gives a venue for playwrights to present their work in the Play Lab, where they receive feedback from theatre professionals and their peers, and have the opportunity to network with actors and other writers.

It is vital for the state’s theatre community to embrace the story tellers who are speaking about the unique experience of living in the Alaska. The Conference is dedicated to fostering playwrights and the presentation of new works by Alaskans.
