The Diary of Anne Frank
2:00-3:30 pm   |  Ages 8+
Anne Frank was a real girl who was concealed in an Amsterdam storage attic with seven other people to evade the Nazis. Each day she would reflect on her harrowing ordeal in her journal. What emerged was a living, poetic, and often gently humorous portrait of childhood in the throes of a crisis. Witness her story live onstage.

Adapted by Wendy Kesselman, Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett.
