WHAT: The Windham Theatre Guild will hold open auditions for the final Main Stage production of the season, The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett.
In 1942, thirteen-year-old Anne Frank and her family—German-born Jews—were driven into hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The Frank family spent two years living in a cramped annex with several other Jews before they were arrested by the Gestapo in 1944. All except Anne’s father, Otto, perished in Nazi concentration camps. However, during those two years in hiding, Anne Frank kept a remarkably witty, insightful, and moving diary about her life and the world around her. From that journal comes the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, winner of the 1956 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Above all, the play is a celebration of the lively mind of Anne Frank and the complex human spirits of those with whom she shared the annex. Audition for the show and be a part of history
