The Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Theater company will perform the fall musical Anastasia at the high school's Olson Auditorium in Belgrade THIS weekend!
This will be a tremendous musical to take in, with some cast members taking three to five roles. Cast members have put tremendous effort into learning their roles and adding unique expressions, mannerisms and personality to their parts in the musical.
Show dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 18, 19 and 20. Show times for the first two nights are 7 p.m., while the Sunday show starts at 5 p.m. The show runs approximately two hours including one 15-minute intermission. Concessions will be available at intermission.

On Wednesday, November 16, the musical cast and crew performed a special "Sneak Preview" for B-B-E middle school students in grades 4 to 8 at Olson Auditorium. From Act I, they performed 4 of 14 scenes for the middle schoolers. From Act II, they performed 3 of 12 scenes. The full musical features 26 scenes.
From Wikipedia: Anastasia is a musical play with music and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and a book by Terrence McNally. Based on the 1997 Don Bluth animated film of the same name, the musical adapts the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, who could have escaped the execution of her family. Years later, an amnesiac orphan named Anya hopes to find some trace of her family by siding with two con men who wish to take advantage of her likeness to the Grand Duchess.
