Playhouse on the Square to Present THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, 3/14-30
During World War II, the gifted young Jewish girl chronicles her rapidly changing life as she and 7 others hide in an attic to avoid the terrors of Nazi rule. This transcendently powerful adaptation by Wendy Kesselman tells a deeper story by incorporating Holocaust survivor accounts and newly discovered writings from Anne Frank's diary.
The Diary of Anne Frank is directed by Irene Crist (Angels in America) and features Dani Chaum as Anne Frank. Resident Company Members Michael Gravois, Dave Landis, and Kent Reynolds are featured with Anne Marie Caskey and Christina Wellford Scott.
The Diary of Anne Frank runs March 14 - March 30 at Playhouse on the Square. The Pay What You Can performance is Thursday, March 19 at 8:00 pm. Playhouse on the Square is located at 66 S. Cooper Street in Midtown Memphis. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at playhouseonthesquare.org.
