Open Stage presents the highly acclaimed, award-winning play, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. 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. Adapted by Wendy Kesselman, the play was first dramatized by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett from the memoir Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. This is the professional theatre’s 23rd annual presentation of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. Second only to the Bible, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK is one of the world’s most read books. Even if audiences have read the diary and watched the movie, experiencing the live stage play is a unique and moving experience that brings new life to the story and the characters. 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.
