The Diary of Anne Frank, written by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, is presented as part of Bay Street Theatre's Literature Live! 2013 educational program, which presents a piece of literature selected from the core curriculum and brings it to life on stage for the general public as well as for schools across Long Island.
The Cast of THE DIARY OF Anne Frank: Sawyer Avery (Peter van Daan), Keith Cornelius (Mr. Frank), Chloë Dirksen (Miep), Terrance Fiore (Mr. Dussel), Lydia Franco-Hodges (Mrs. Frank), Josh Gladstone (Mr. Van Daan), Jessica Mortellaro (Anne Frank), Kate Mueth (Mrs. Van Daan), Joe Pallister (Mr. Kraler) and Georgia Warner (Margot Frank).
Literature Live! is a BOCES-approved Arts-in-Education program. Plays chosen are from standards-based literature and are supported with teacher-developed lesson plans and reference materials. All performances are 90 minutes and weekday shows are followed by a question and answer session with Werner Reich, a Holocaust survivor.
THE DIARY OF Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett is a stage adaptation of the book. The story, which made its debut in 1956, won both a Tony award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. This riveting play about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed space above a warehouse allows audiences to feel their claustrophobic existence, their hopes, their fears and their indomitable will to survive.
