The Foothill Theatre Arts Department’s virtual performance readings of “The Diary of Anne Frank” are scheduled this weekend.
Produced in coordination with Foothill College’s Jewish Heritage Month Celebration, the readings will be performed live online 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, free of charge.
Written by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, the biographical play chronicles the trials and tribulations of the Frank and Van Daan families as they hide in an Amsterdam attic to avoid Nazi persecution. The families’ stories are recorded by Anne Frank, then a teenager, who left her diary behind as history’s echo.
Directed by Roneet Aliza Rahamim, the cast includes Caitlin Devenney (as Anne Frank), John Mannion (Mr. Frank), Regina Kohl (Mrs. Frank), Elana Hershman (Margot Frank), Tucker Gold (Peter Van Daan), Kelly Gregg Rubingh (Mrs. Van Daan), Dan Schwager (Mr. Van Daan), Tom Reilly (Mr. Dussel), Rheagan Rizio (Miep), Ed Pieczenik (Mr. Kraler) and Joanie Pugh Newman (narrator/stage directions).
