Set in the Klondike gold rush, a blizzard isolates two teenage girls in their family trading post. They face the prospect of being separated from their parents for Christmas. Strangers, stranded by the storm, begin to fill the trading post. Among them is a fugitive wanted for murder.
This new holiday production was commissioned by ACT and written by P. Shane Mitchell. It is enjoyable and heartwarming for the whole family.

Anchorage Community Theatre presented its first play, Down in the Valley, in 1953, putting on three more plays that year including Harvey and A Christmas Carol. Check out the list of all our plays at ACT. Over the past six decades we have strived to consistently present great stories at prices everyone can afford. We are looking forward to a great 60th season next year. We open in September with Agatha Christie's mystery thriller And Then There Were None. Our Christmas show, Christmas on the Yukon, is an original play written by Anchorage playwright Shane Mitchell. and we have three more outstanding and funny shows in the spring. We hope you will join our community.
We also allow businesses to purchase reasonably priced ads in our season's playbills, viewed by over 5,000 attendees at our plays. Please send us the playbill ad order form.
