Just in time for Halloween season, Youtheatre is digging up the original master of horror himself.  For nearly 100 years, Edgar Allen Poe’s tales of murder, madness and the supernatural have delighted readers of all ages.  Now, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Masque of the Red Death, The Raven and more of his spine-tingling stories come to life in this vivid theatrical adaptation from the author of last season’s The House.  Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as Poe’s words rise like corpses from the grave.  So get your tickets  and miss the spooky fun…NEVERMORE.

Her past is a mystery.  Her future is an adventure.  Inspired by the beloved film, Anastasia transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s as a brave young woman sets out to discover if she’s the legendary Russian Princess. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.  Featuring favorites from the hit animated film, “Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December,” Anastasia is a spectacular musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be.

Directed by Christopher J. Murphy
