WSA Theatre Company Presents: The Diary of Anne Frank, November 17-19

November 03, 2017
By Gretchen Nordleaf-Nelson

The West Sound Academy Theatre Company will present The Diary of Anne Frank November 17, 18 at 7 p.m. and November 19 at 2 p.m. in The Commons at West Sound Academy, Poulsbo, Washington.

The Diary of Anne FrankOriginally written by Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, West Sound Academy will be producing the script that was adapted by Wendy Kesselman and premiered on Broadway in 1997. The story tells the tragic, accurate, and incredible journey of Anne Frank’s life in the Secrete Annex, the place where she and her family along with fellow Jews hid from the outside world that was falling into chaos and Nazi rule. The Diary of Anne Frank closely follows the twists and turns in her life as she recorded them in her diary, Kitty, from close calls with discovery, to living confined in the Annex with her family and others, to her first kiss. Kesselman’s adaptation includes several narrated passages that were originally excised from both the original publication of her diary and hence the play, by her father Otto Frank. In this new adaptation we see a more human and angst driven teen in Anne Frank who is frustrated with her mother, being compared to her “perfect sister” and a young teen who describes, both tenderly and explicitly, her schoolgirl crush on another girl and the awakening of her adolescence.
