“The Diary of Anne Frank” @ Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center
Apr 17 @ 8:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Diary of Anne Frank Lit Live Theater Company and the Simi Valley Arts Alliance return with an all-new production of The Diary of Anne Frank. Based on the real-life story told in one of the most famous books of all time, this play dramatizes the 1942-1944 writings of a Jewish schoolgirl, chronicling her fate and that of seven other friends and family members who are in hiding from the Nazis. Anne Frank emerges from history an intensely gifted young girl, who confronts the increasing horror for her time with honesty, wit and determination. An impassioned drama, this play captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence — their fear, their hope, their laughter and their grief. Anne’s spirit and optimism touches all audiences and reminds us that forgiveness and faith in the good of people is what keeps the world in balance, even when all seems lost.
