Adapted by Wendy Kesselman

Based on the original play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Based on the book Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

Directed by Terry Martin

The Wendy Kesselman adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett received two Tony Award nominations in 1999, including Best Play.

More than one million children perished in the World War II Holocaust.  Anne Frank was one of those children.  The play is based on the nonfiction classic work Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.  The play tells the true story of the remarkable spirit of a young girl who lived and perished during a time when difference was not tolerated by Adolf Hitler, and when some people risked their own lives to help others like Anne Frank and her family.  Sponsored by The Dallas Foundation, The 500, Inc., RoBert Mayer, Jr., Atmos Energy, the Addison Business Association in honor of RoBert Mayer, Jr., and Women of WaterTower Theatre.

Boeing-Boeing, the high-flying, Tony award-winning comedy that had London and Broadway audiences airborne with laughter, is taking off at WaterTower Theatre in Addison.  Bernard, a successful American architect living in a posh Paris apartment, has been deftly juggling three fiancées who are all flight attendants. It’s easy, with good timing and a bit of assistance from his reluctant housekeeper who plays romantic air-traffic controller.
