Anastasia is based on the legend of a young girl named Princess Anastasia who survives the 1917 Russian revolution. Separated from her grandmother, the Dowager Empress, Anastasia spends the remainder of her childhood in an orphanage with the new name, Anya. As a young woman, Anya has only one possession, a music box, given to her by the grandmother she doesn’t remember. She is discovered by two con men hoping to cash in on a reward for finding the missing Princess Anastasia. The three set off for a Paris adventure with the evil witch Rasputin in pursuit.
Located in Bandon, MarLo Dance Studio is pleased to represent more than 90 dancers from Bandon, Coos Bay, Port Orford, Langlois, Gold Beach, Coquille and Myrtle Point. In this production, the role of Anastasia is played by Hallie Minkler, the Dowager Empress by Mel Garrett, and the evil witch Rasputin by Hadassah Slater.
