The Diary of Anne Frank

One Weekend Only: Friday, Saturday 7:30pm; Sunday 3:00pm; NCHS Auditorium

Stop 2 in our 2020 Freedom Tour, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. 

The same book that children read in schools is just as moving on the stage. Dramatized by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, the action tells the true story of the Frank and Van Daan families as they go into hiding in 1940’s Amsterdam.

Thirteen-year-old Anne guides the audience through the lonely and terrifying two-year ordeal that she experiences with her sister and parents, young Peter Van Daan and his parents, and a cranky dentist who joins them behind the walls of Otto Frank’s office. The story is told through Anne’s eyes, but it is at first narrated by her father, the only one out of the eight refugees who survived the war.

The Diary of Anne Frank won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony for Best Play when it was premiered in 1955. In a Tony Award-winning revival in 1997, the role of Anne was played by Natalie Portman and Otto Frank was played by George Hearn. We still honor this story and the people who lived it today, seventy-five years after Anne’s death in a concentration camp.
