Max conjures a custom experience that young ones will carry with them long after the show ends.
Inspired by the beloved films of the same name, Anastasia transports audiences from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s as it follows a brave young woman who sets out to discover the mystery of her past.
