Diary of Anne Frank FINAL Low Res.jpg

 

The Diary of Anne Frank is a stage adaptation of the 1947 book The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.  Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.

Anne Frank:

The youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank; Anne is a lively, curious girl of thirteen at the beginning of the play; she retains her bright spark throughout; she moves from childishly naive, to outgoing and boisterous, to creative and introspective; she misses nothing that happens in the annex.

Book by Rachel Sheinkin  Music by Rachel Portman  
Lyrics by Donna di Novelli


Directed by Patricia Miller
Musical Director: Bill Wolfe  Choreographer: Bradley Miller 

Through the magic of live theatre, the musical follows the Ingalls family's journey westward and settlement in DeSmet, South Dakota where Ma and Pa Ingalls hoped to make a better life for their children. It tells the story of their struggle to keep their land claim. In story, song and dance, we see the Ingalls suffering the hardships of winter blizzards and prairie fires as well as rejoicing in the settlement of land and town. Most of all, the story follows Laura as she grows from the wild child who loved to run free into a woman who embraces the responsibilities of her own future while struggling to remain true to herself.
