Theatre Coppell Announces Auditions for the Diary of Anne Frank

A lit candle and a star with the word Jude on it, against a black background, with the text: The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of our human history. In spite of her oppressive circumstances and the horrors that surround her, Anne’s spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” Anne’s dynamism, her luminous spirit, and her story of resilience continue to resonate deeply, making her story as vital today as when her diary first was published.

Director: Sandy Edwards | Assistant Director: Bobbi Ritcheske
