El Centro College Students Display Designs Inspired by Broadway Musical ANASTASIA During Run at Dallas Summer Musicals

The El Centro College Special Topics in Fashion Design and Illustration class is very much like the TV show “Project Runway,” with students being tasked to create a project under the mentorship of a professional designer. For this semester’s challenge, El Centro College fashion design students collaborated with Dallas Summer Musicals (DSM) to create pieces inspired by the hit Broadway musical, ANASTASIA, which is coming to DSM on its first North American tour beginning Feb. 19.

From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime and inspired by the beloved films, 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 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. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.

Single tickets for ANASTASIA, which will run at the Music Hall at Fair Park from Feb. 19 through March 3, are now on sale at DallasSummerMusicals.org, with prices starting at $25 (subject to change). Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Music Hall at Fair Park Box Office Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Groups of 10 or more get concierge service and may receive a special discount on their tickets. To book a group, please call (214) 426-4768 or email Groups@DallasSummerMusicals.org.
