Auditions are open to the general public.
Those auditioning will be asked to read scenes from the play and do improvisations. If callbacks are needed, those called back may be given a short monologue to learn for the callback. Actors should bring a recent photograph and a list of all time and date conflicts they have in March, April and through the first week of May.
The Diary of Anne Frank opens Thursday April 16th, and will be in rehearsals from late February until opening night. A total of 9 shows will be performed.
The play is a new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman of the original by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. The Diary of Anne Frank tells the true story of a young Jewish girl and her family in hiding during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands from June, 1942 until August, 1944. The play begins the morning the Franks go into hiding and it chronicles the events of the next two years in the tiny annex as told through the eyes and words of the buoyant and eloquent Anne. Through the journey taken by these people, we experience hope and despair and everything in between. It is a story of humanity; the best of it and the worst.
