The growth of theatre in Anchorage, Alaska, is a microcosm of theatre development throughout the United States in the twentieth century. In less than a century, Anchorage grew from its humble origins to become a vibrant frontier city of 300,000 and the cultural center of the state. Homegrown playwrights developed their craft, arts institutions flourished, withered, and were replaced by new institutions. Universities developed cadres of actors, directors, playwrights, designers and technicians.

"... [Stadem] identifies the hundreds of people from directors and actors to stagehands and costume designers who over the decades brought first-class theatre to a territory that was once described in Congress as "worthless country. This is a valuable contribution to history wherever the impact of theatre in our society is taught, studied or discussed." - Prof. John Strohmeyer University of Alaska Anchorage "As theater critic, [Stadem] recorded each development in the evolution of that city's scene with her own description, analysis, interpretation and evaluation.... Even more importantly, she used her contacts to track down and interview many of the major players, who now live "Outside" Alaska. This is among her most crucial contributions to scholarship." - Prof. Michael Barnes St. Edward's University"
