The Diary of Anne Frank
February 21 March 31
Amsterdam, 1942. In a cramped, secret annex, eight Jewish refugees attempt to evade Nazi deportation.

Anne Frank, a teenage girl with a vibrant spirit and a gift for writing, chronicles the courage and terror of their life in hiding. Our production, featuring a multi-racial cast, honors this “undeniably moving” (The New York Times) story as it speaks to today’s increasingly nationalistic world.

Community Night tickets are only $29 — February 21st, 22nd, and 23rd

February 21-March 31, 2018 By Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett Adapted by Wendy Kesselman Directed by David Bradley Leonard C. Haas Stage

Audio Description

Audio Description headsets provide commentary on the visual aspects of a performance (the set, costumes, and lighting effects, as well as the physical actions and body language of the actors) for our patrons with visual impairments. This supplemental narration interweaves with the real-time, spoken dialogue, so patrons won’t miss a moment of the performance. In conjunction with this service, we will offer pre-performance sensory tours with an opportunity to experience up close and feel certain key props and costume pieces.
