DBFRT is proud to be the first Community Theatre in Arizona to present an adult cast production. 

Her past is a mystery. Her future is an adventure. Anastasia: The Musical is the spectacular new musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be. From Tony winners Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, this dazzling show transports the 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 Dmitry and a lovable ex-aristocrat Vlad. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

Inspired by the 1997 Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture animation film directed and produced by Don Bluth. By special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical and from the play by Marcelle Maurette as adapted by Guy Bolton
