Evansville Civic Theatre’s Presentation of “The Diary of Anne Frank” Opens this Weekend!
Watch the story of Anne Frank come to life on the Evansville Civic stage.
The DIary of Anne Frank is one of the most important pieces of literature to ever be written. It gives a first-hand experience of what the Holocaust was like from a young girls diary. The story is heartbreaking but an important one to to know.
"During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday, and twenty-two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and four other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father’s office building in Amsterdam. The sealed-off upper-rooms also contained a hidden room which the Franks would hide in when Nazi soldiers were investigating the buildings for harbored Jews. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps."
Performances are October 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th at 7:30 and Oct. 14th and 21st at 2pm.
