Gulfport Little Theatre is proud to announce its production of The Diary of Anne Frank, based up on the book Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.
One of the most famous and haunting stories of the 20th Century, the play brings to life the memoirs of a young Jewish girl forced to hide in an attic for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution.
As relevant today as when first written, Anne Frank’s diary is an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods in human history. It is no secret that “The Diary of Anne Frank” does not end happily. Finally captured by the Gestapo, Anne was sent to a concentration camp where she died at the age of 15. During those two years in hiding, Anne wrote her story and urged us to stand up for one another in the face of intolerance, fear and hatred.
Set in a secret annex behind Otto Frank’s office in Amsterdam, the story is told of the Franks as they share the cramped space with another family,as well as other visitors.
Juliette Locklar portrays Anne Frank. Other cast members include: Ashleigh Sanderson as Margot Frank, Barry Newman as Otto Frank, Crystal Locklar as Edith Frank, Jim Russell as Mr. Van Daan, Lori Spann as Mrs. Van Daan, Samuel Somervell as Peter Van Daan, Benjamin Smith as Albert Dussel, Jacob Locklar as Mr. Kraler and Christina Clayton as Miep Gies.
Directed by Lori Grove, GLT’s production captures the complex coming-of-age story Anne recorded in her diary – the fear, hope, laughter and grief the families shared amid war and religious persecution set amongst the claustrophobic realities of daily life, .
