On June 12, 1942, a young Jewish girl named Anne Frank received a diary for her 13th birthday.
In her diary she recounts the two arduous years that she, her parents, sister and four others spent in hiding in the sealed-off back rooms of an Amsterdam office building in order to avoid arrest by the Nazis. Tragically, in August 1944, their hiding place was revealed, and they were taken into custody. Anne Frank died in the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen in March 1945, just two months before Holland was freed, and three months before her sixteenth birthday. Otto Frank, her father and sole survivor, returned after the war and was given Anne’s diary.
This play is a dramatization of Anne Frank’s own diaries, her extraordinary account of the years she endured in hiding with family and friends in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. It takes place in the “Secret Annex” – the small attic hideaway in Amsterdam where Anne, her sister Margot, and her parents lived with four others in complete seclusion for two years. Meet Miep Gies and Mr. Kraler, the brave people who risked their own lives while saving the ones of those they hid.
The diary, first published in the US in 1952, and considered to be one of the single most important documents of World War II, has been translated into 55 languages and has captured the hearts of readers all over the world. It was first dramatized and produced on Broadway in 1955 and won virtually every theatre award including both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Drama. The play was later made into an Oscar-winning film.
The cast includes Lili Shuger (Anne Frank), Shane Delavan (Otto Frank), Julie K. Wolf (Mrs. Frank), Mariel Goffredi (Margot Frank), Claude Diener (Mr. VanDaan), Erin Bell (Mrs. VanDaan), Benji Dienstfrey (Peter VanDaan), Leroy Leonard (Mr. Dussell), Stephanie Kidd (Mieip Gies) and Eddie Schumacher (Mr. Kraler).

This is the story of the legal demise of Oscar Wilde as he was charged with “gross indecency with male persons.” The challenging play will remind audiences of the devastating effects of prejudice and of the way in which artists can become lightning rods for cultural tensions.
