Redmond High School (RHS) students will perform the Diary of Anne Frank beginning Friday, May 12 at 7 p.m.
The play tells the heroic story of a young teen hiding from Nazis during WWII.
Additional performances are scheduled for May 13, 19 at 7 p.m. and a matinee on May 20 at 2 p.m.
“While the play depicts grim circumstances, the RHS production highlights the humor of people trapped together in tight quarters, and focuses on Anne’s inspiring optimism in the face of darkness,” Director Pat Tellinghusen explained.
“This experience is so much more than just a play,” Tellinghusen continued. “Our students relate to Anne. She was their age when she wrote words that profoundly touched generations around the world. We journal together to explore the power of our own thoughts and words.”
Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett wrote the dramatization of The Diary of Anne Frank that will be performed on the RHS stage.
Performances are held in the Clyde Moore Auditorium at Redmond High.
Tickets for adults are $8 online, $10 at the door. Students and seniors pay $5. Guests can purchase tickets online at redmondhs.seatyourself.biz.
