St. Bart's is pleased to present this highly acclaimed, award-winning play in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Anne Frank's birth in 2004. The poignant drama of the Frank family living in hiding in Nazi occupied Amsterdam has touched the hearts of millions around the world. Based upon the book, Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl and dramatized by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett; the play opened on Broadway in 1955. St. Bart's is fortunate to have Stephen Press, the actor who played Peter Van Daan in the original Broadway production, direct St. Bart's revival. "Yes, The Dairy of Anne Frank is a drama about a very serious subject, but it is filled with the joy of life," Press explains. "During her three years in hiding, Anne Frank found love and laughter and amazing maturity. Great theatre changes people, this play will change your life."

Plus a Special Added Attraction

During this production, The Anne Frank Story exhibit will be displayed in the cloister of St. Bartholomew's Church, which connects the playhouse to the church.

Using photos from the Frank's family album, historical images from the period and entries from Anne's diary, The Anne Frank Story exhibit explores the life of Anne Frank from her birth on June 12, 1929, through her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945. The exhibit details the Frank's flight from Germany to The Netherlands, the growth of Nazism in Germany, the invasion of the Netherlands and life under Nazi rule. Panels are dedicated to Anne's life in the "Secret Annex," the helpers and the family's eventual betrayal and deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

The photographs illustrate what life was like for the Frank family and millions of other Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe, and the entries from Anne's diary describe her life in hiding and her impressions of the events taking place outside the Secret Annex. The Anne Frank Center USA continues Anne Frank's legacy by sponsoring exhibitions such as this one across North America.
