High Schoolers Experience 'Anastasia'

High Schoolers Experience 'Anastasia'
High school juniors and seniors recently visited New York City to view the Broadway show “Anastasia.” The hit musical, nominated for the Drama Desk award, was adapted from the 1997 film of the same name, both based on the legend of Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia.

“The staging of this production was amazing, from the elaborate palace sets to the train car, with the screens in the background giving a sense of travel as scenes of Russia's lush landscapes blended into Paris's magnificence,” said English teacher Linda Leach, who accompanied the students. “The universal themes of love lost and found, familial relationships torn asunder due to war, and discovering who you are all played out to music sung beautifully by Christy Altomare and Zach Adkins.”
