The climax takes place near the end of the third act when the stage manager takes Emily back to see her twelfth birthday, and begins to appreciate the beauty of everyday life, of course it could also be when she decides that she's not fit for everyday life and decides to go back to the cemetery. I imagine another easy and popular answer would be the wedding scene at the very end of the second act.
