Amity High School is proud to present the Broadway musical, Anastasia.

Anastasia is the story of Anya (Grace Blanchard), an orphan in 1920s St. Petersburg yearning to discover her lost family.

She encounters two men — ex-aristocrat Vlad (Nicholas Matalote) and the strapping conman Dmitri (Ryan Kennedy) — who convince her she just might be Anastasia, the Romanov duchess rumored to have survived the Russian Revolution.

Together, they flee to Paris, where they hope to present Anya to the exiled Dowager Empress (Olivia Sceppa), Anastasia’s grandmother, who happens to be offering a reward to anyone who finds her granddaughter.

Anastasia is a musical for the whole family! And… for the first time ever the show will be presented outdoors to provide a safer environment for our audience.

Tickets for our outdoor production of Anastasia the Musical are Now On Sale!
