Experience the beautiful story, live on stage in our 18th annual production of the play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hacket, based upon Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, adapted by Wendy Kesselman. Set during one of history’s most brutal periods, the Holocaust, the play is based on the actual diary of a young girl who comes of age while hiding from the Nazis in a tiny, overcrowded attic with her family for more than two years. During their confinement, Anne discovers herself as a beautiful, thoughtful, and extraordinary girl. Her story is a constant reminder to us all of the power of the human spirit.  Running time 100 minutes without intermission.

Recommended for ages 10 and up for difficult themes.  All guests require a ticket, regardless of age.  No children under 6 admitted.

Educators, contact for reservations to matinee performances.  (One school matinee chaperone attends free with every 15 tickets purchased.  Matinees include special presentation by Holocaust survivor Hilda Mantelmacher.)
