This December, audiences were treated to the superb Diary of Anne Frank (by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett) as performed by our very talented Stanner Players. Premiering in 1955, this adaptation of The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank tells the story of the young Jewish girl and her family as they hide alongside their neighbors from the Nazis during World War II. Anne’s diary reveals their struggles as well as her own self-discovery.
Director Ms. Shannon Winters ’06 was very pleased with the way her actors handled the difficult subject. “This play is not only an exercise in acting, but also in exploring the 1940’s, and Jewish culture and history. The story and characters are daunting to portray, but acting is meant to be challenging. I have been immensely impressed with the maturity of our students throughout the rehearsal process.” Check out our photo gallery from the show below and on Facebook, which features photos from student photographers Jake Temkin ’20, Isabella Fazio ’19, and Jennifer Marry ’19.
