Anastasia the Musical will showcase the full strengths of our crew and cast's technical and performance capabilities! The set is poised to provide the grandeur of a Royal Russian palace turned to ruble during the Bolshevik revolution all the way to the streets and Ballet stages of Paris. The cast prepares to sing a complex musical score built with large ballads and intimate solos while also working to learn the specific dance styles of the 1920s ballroom and ballet. The cast will be working with a ballroom dance specialist to recreate the grand ballroom scenes of the time! All of which we hope will be an amazing learning experience for everyone involved!

Anastasia the Musical hails from Tony winner Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, creators of such Broadway classics as Ragtime and Once on This Island, this dazzling show transports its audience from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

"This play features our outstanding theatre students and also students from around the entire Dekalb and Jackson county areas," stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. "The cast and crew along with trampolines, swings, and the theatre’s state-of-the-art lighting effects will make this a truly special occasion for you! The theatre students, directors, and community members have developed, designed, and planned this production since the beginning of January." 

NACC’s Theatre Department, led by Director of Theatre Kayleigh Smith, has used the college’s state-of-the-art technical equipment and talented theatre students, community members, and college staff to bring in-person productions back to the area.

“We are going to be doing so much work to make this show amazing, be sure to come out and see it,” said Smith. “Anastasia the Musical will feature thrilling ballroom dance, a large cast full of talent, and incredible story telling brought to life using sound, music, lighting, choreography, beautiful scenery, and most importantly of all, imagination!
