The ORHS Masquers production of Anastasia is happening this weekend! Come see this revolutionary musical. This dazzling show transports its audience from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as 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 con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family. You have four chances to see this touching story –  Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm.  T. Lloyd
