The Diary of Anne Frank
March 31 – May 2020
Dramatized by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Based on the book Anne Frank:
The Diary of a Young Girl Edited by Otto Frank
Back when this play had its time on Broadway, it received unanimous acclaim from all the top New York reviewers.
It’s a lovely tender drama, told with honesty and courage. The shining spirit of this young girl continues to filter
down through the years and inspire hope. Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett have fashioned a wonderfully
sensitive and theatrical narrative out of the real-life legacy left to us by a spirited and straightforward Jewish girl.
There is beauty and warm humor in this story, and our theatre in the round adds to the intimate feeling, making
the audience feel as though they are in the annex with these brave families. Its powerful messages of hope and
strength will give your students an experience they will never forget.
