Cast Set for ANASTASIA at White Plains Performing Arts Center

The White Plains Performing Arts Center has revealed the cast for their Mainstage production of ANASTASIA, playing December 15 – January 7 which marks the shows first professional regional production. 

From the Tony Award winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, comes this dazzling musical based on the beloved 1997 animated movie. From the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, 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 conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat to find out if she is indeed Princess Anastasia.  Including classic songs from the motion picture like “Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December”, this show is perfect for the whole family this holiday season.

Leading the cast are Katherine Lindsley as Anya, Coleman Cummings as Dmitry, Drew Becker as Gleb, Patricia M. Lawrence as the Dowager Empress, Caroline Huerta as Countess Lily and Broadway Veteran John Treacy Egan as Vlad.  Rounding out the company are Connor Barton, Anna Dreslinski, Danny Durr, Holly Echsner, Cody Edwards, Roberto Facchin, Grace Flynn, Raphe Gilliam, Meghan Hoey, Gerry Kenneth, Maggie Likcani, Marlena Lopez-Hilderley, Adam Shteinhauz, Aaron Shuf, Tala Siman, Daniela Tamasi and Aidan Ziegler-Hansen.

“Getting to be one of the first companies to produce this title is such a thrill for all involved and we cannot wait to share this lavish musical with our audiences. The show is filled with mystery, discovery, love, and loss - the elements of a perfect show for the holiday season. The musical gives everybody who grew up with the movie what they need now— finding yourself, romance, and taking your place in the world. It's truly the perfect show for the entire family.”  says the WPPAC team.
