Rental media is available quickly after payment is complete. This allows you to make choices in your staging and other scenery in response to what the media can do. Please provide the dates of the production and the name of the presenting institution. The standard agreement assumes the show will be presented with audience for no more than three weeks in one venue. You may rehearse with media for longer if you like. For most media, you are welcome to edit or rearrange things to suit your needs. There are often elements that can be added or rearranged by your choice. Instructions and cuing guides are included.

Anastasia wants to be grandiose and opulent. The settings change quickly and include palaces, ballrooms, fields, streets, theatres, and more. Dance is important in this show, and the music invites the set changes to be fluid and beautiful.

This media assumes that you have the essential furniture for the show: some chairs, a desk, a bed. Maybe a bench and a few other things. Beyond that, it works well on its own, or along with some set pieces. Arches or flown drapes can integrate well with this media. The elements in the media often move in and out of the composition like physical scenery, which maintains the sense of grandeur and theatricality so important to this production. The media includes the elevator ride up the Eiffel Tower and the train ride.
