Diary of Anne Frank Provides Educational and Entertainment Opportunity

Imagination Theatre of Germantown Presents Stirring Story of Young Holocaust Victim

 

Germantown, WI – February 25 – With so many books, movies, mini-series and documentaries on the Holocaust, what is it about Anne Frank’s diary that proves so powerful all these years later? “The story is so personal,” says Heidi Salter, director of Imagination Theatre of Germantown, the community theater group putting on the play this March. “It begins with a girl and her family and some friends hiding in an attic, and it just ends abruptly on August 1, 1944 when this perfectly normal teenager has been killed for no other reason than that she is Jewish.”

Unlike some of the horrific portrayals of Nazi’s, death camps, barbed wire and gas chambers, the Holocaust is far in the background during the play. Yet, that somehow only serves to make it more powerful. Sometimes it is so hard to wrap your mind around the Holocaust when you consider six million people killed, but it becomes real and personal and all the more horrific when you consider just one of its victims.

The Diary of Anne Frank is based upon the book, "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl." It’s a play by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett, newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman. Imagination Theatre of Germantown performance dates: Friday, March 18th and 25th at 7pm, Saturday, March 19th and 26th at 7pm, Sunday, March 20th and 27th at 3:30pm. All performances will be held at Lutheran Church of the Living Christ located at W156 N10660 Pilgrim Road in Germantown. Prices are $10 or $8 for groups of 10 or more. To purchase tickets call 1-262-957-0399 or visit www.itogonline.org
