Prairie Heights Theatre will present “The Diary of Anne Frank”at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18 and 19.
The story concerns the lives of a Jewish family hiding from German occupying forces in war-torn Amsterdam. To escape the horrors of Nazi persecution, Otto Frank hides with his wife and two daughters in attic rooms above an Amsterdam warehouse for two years. Also hiding with the Franks are four other people – the Van Daanns, their son Peter, and a dentist, Mr. Dussel. In her diary, Anne Frank recorded an account of the trials and tribulations of the people around her, all trying to live a normal life in a cramped attic accommodation while under the constant threat of discovery by the Gestapo. This is a story made all the more dramatic because it its based on a true account and concerns the lives of real people.
Tickets can be preordered by calling 260-351-2989 or will be available at the door.
