Pima Community College proudly presents “The Diary of Anne Frank.”
In 1943 Holland, a 13-year-old Jewish girl and her family are forced into hiding to escape deportation to concentration camps by the Nazis. During the two years in hiding, young Anne Frank recorded her thoughts and feelings in her now world-famous diary. The play, adapted from Anne’s diary, made its theater debut in October 1955 and was an immediate critical and popular success. It won the Pulitzer Prize, the Critics Circle Prize, and the Tony Award for best play in 1956. Anne Frank became a universal symbol of triumph of spirit over oppression. The play released a wave of emotion that finally broke through the silence with which the Germans had treated the Nazi period. Pima’s performances commemorate Holocaust History Month.
An open dialogue with the audience, cast, and director will follow every performance.
Recommended for children, third grade and up.
