The Dixie Hosts Bethel Renaissance Theatre’s Anastasia: The Musical


Take a step back in time and enter the world of Anastasia: The Musical April 5-13 at The Dixie Carter PAC. In this invigorating production, audience members will be transported from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s.
