But to participate, you’ll have to get that regal caboose moving quickly: ALL ENTRIES ARE DUE BY THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9.


What do I need?

You can use practically anything you find at home or outside—fabric, glue, glitter, markers, ribbon, hair, paper, felt, feathers, sticks, leaves, etc. Let your creativity shine! The only caveat is your entry needs to be an original creation rather than something purchased.


How do I get started?

Watch this fun tutorial by professional wig and makeup designer Jason Estrada! He walks you through some simple tips on how to size and structure your creation.



Who is eligible to compete?

The contest includes two categories for submissions:

👑 Age 14 and Under

👑 Age 15+


** Remember, you must complete the official entry form and submit photos of your creation to be eligible.**


When will winners be notified?

Winners and Runner ups for each age category will be announced on Monday, October 10. Winners receive four tickets and Runner ups receive two tickets to see ANASTASIA.


May the best crown win!




Groups of 15+ receive 10% off, plus one complimentary ticket. Valid on select performances and price zones.
