Open Stage of Harrisburg presents the highly acclaimed, award-winning play, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. Winner Of The Pulitzer Prize, The Tony Award, The Critic's Circle Award, and Virtually Every Other Coveted Prize of the Theatre, the play is an inspiring story of perseverance and hope, which serves as a timeless lesson that the spirit of a child is impossible to deny.
Even if you have read the diary or watched the movie, experiencing the live stage play is a unique and moving experience that brings new life to the story. Set during one of history's most brutal periods, the Holocaust, the play is based on the actual diary of a young girl who comes of age while hiding from the Nazis in a tiny, overcrowded attic with her family for more than two years. During their confinement, Anne discovers herself as a beautiful, thoughtful, and extraordinary girl. Her story is a constant reminder to us all of the power of the human spirit.
Since 2000, there have been 81 public performances of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. Open Stage of Harrisburg's Student Matinees have brought the story of Anne Frank to life for 25,000 students. THE SPIRIT OF ANNE FRANK FUND - Open Stage has established a fund to support theatrical productions that explore the value of diversity, improve intergroup relations, and combat racism, anti-Semitism, and all forms of prejudice and bigotry including, but not limited to, the current production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK.
