The Diary of Anne FrankFebruary 1-9, 2019
Performing Arts Center Main Stage Theatre(map)
The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. The memoirs of this young, Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of our human history.
For nearly two years, Anne, her father, mother, and sister, joined with the Van Daan family, to hide in a secret annex space above her father’s former office in Amsterdam, as the Nazis deported the Jews of Holland to their deaths. In her secret attic, Anne comes of age: she laughs, plays, fights with her mother, and falls in love for the first time. In spite of her oppressive circumstances and the horrors that surround her, Anne’s luminous spirit, her dynamism, and her story of incredible resilience continue to resonate deeply, making her as relevant and vital today as when her diary was first published in 1974.
The play opens on February 1 at 7pm and features the talented musical theatre & drama students of the Coronado School of the Arts. The Coronado Performing Arts Center Main Stage Theatre located at 650 D Avenue is the venue for this emotional stage adaptation. Additional performances on February 2 at 7pm, February 3 at 2pm, February 8 and 9 both at 7pm.
Tickets are $15 and available for immediate purchase online or at the box office 45 minutes prior to each performance. The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
