Imagination Theater presents the Tony Award winning show, The Diary of Anne Frank , Friday, July 9 - Saturday, July 24, 2010. This is the true story of a young Jewish girl, Anne Frank who kept a diary during World War II. As Jews in German-occupied Holland, Anne, her family, and others hid in a secret attic-annex above a warehouse to avoid capture. The annex was discovered by the Nazi authorities in 1944 and Anne's family and friends were sent to concentration camps. Anne's father, Otto, the only survivor, published his daughter's diary in 1948. Anne could never have imagined the impact her words would have on generations of readers. More than sixteen million copies of her diary have been sold worldwide, and it remains the most read primary account of the Holocaust. The show is directed by Peter Wolfe and produced by Lanny Langston.
