The Lee Playhouse’s third offering of the season is a theatrical reenactment of events from the diary of a Jewish girl who hid with her family from the Nazis in Holland. 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 parents, sister, and three other people. Hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father's office building in Amsterdam, Anne and the others cope with the day-to-day struggles of life in cramped quarters, as the specter of tragedy looms, ever-present, over their every move. For decades this award-winning play, along with the diary on which it is based, has been viewed as an insightful portrait of courage, dignity, and perseverance.
Performance dates are February 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19, at 8 p.m.; and February 6, 13 & 20, at 3 p.m.
Tickets: adults $15; youth (16 & under) $7
