Shakespeare in Action presents
THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
Keeping the story of Anne Frank alive
Shakespeare in Action, Canada’s leading classical company for young audiences that recently launched a revolutionary Virtual Lab on its website for teaching Shakespeare in schools, brings a new production of The Diary of Anne Frank to the stage. The Wendy Kesselman adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank opens March 1 and runs to March 13 at Central Commerce Theatre (with weekday matinees beginning February 23). Rising star Sascha Cole (Factory Theatre’s Bethune Imagined, and CanStage’s Rock’n'Roll) plays the title role.
ew stories have captured the horror and cruelty of the Holocaust quite like the compelling story of Anne Frank. As her family hides from Nazi tyranny, a young woman’s account of courage, love and human resilience transcends the chaos, and continues to inspire young people across the globe. Shakespeare in Action features a first-rate cast of professional actors that includes, along with Cole, Chris Kaczmar, Alexis Koetting, Bruce Beaton, Catherine McNally, Cindy Block, Joe Bucci, Shaun Clark, Kaitlin Janisse and Dan Karpenchuk.
