Stage Talk: Anchorage High School Auditorium

With 2,000 seats the Anchorage High School Auditorium was the largest venue in Anchorage in 1954. The Grateful Dead, Three Dog Night, and Garrison Keillor have all graced the stage of what is today the auditorium at West High School. A West High School graduate, David Block now teaches drama at his former high school and he joins Stage Talk host Mark Muro to talk about the most recent refurbish, remodel and renaming of the auditorium.
