Join us for SPARC's Studio Series Production of The Diary of Anne Frank!
A short talkback will follow Friday evening's performance (Feb 28). We invite everyone to stay and hear from the director and students!
For nearly two years, Anne Frank, her father, mother, and sister, join with the Van Daan family, to hide in a secret annex space above her father’s former office in Amsterdam, as the Nazis deport 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 spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, people are truly good at heart.” Anne’s dynamism, her luminous spirit, and her story of resilience continue to resonate deeply, making her story as vital today as when her diary first was published.
