In this transcendently powerful new adaptation for a new generation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm.
Marcy Oster writes on Forward.com, “More than 200,000 people from around the world have posted on social media photos of themselves holding signs saying “We Remember” in dozens of languages ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The photos have been uploaded on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #WeRemember.”
Gettysburg Community Theatre is a safe place for acceptance of all. At a time when many people still feel unsafe or unwelcome in this country, we think it is important to look back on the horrible things that have happened in this world (such as the Holocaust) and say “We Remember”. Gettysburg Community Theater will be saying “We Remember” when they present their current production, The Diary of Anne Frank. We encourages everyone to come and see this play and check into Gettysburg Community Theater on Facebook and post #WeRemember.
