In 1943 Holland, a 13-year old Jewish girl and her family are forced into hiding to escape deportation to concentration camps by the Nazis. During the two years in hiding, young Anne recorded her thoughts, feelings and the events around her in her now world-famous diary.
Director Nancy Davis Booth has the highest regard for the playwrights Goodrich and Hackett; also known for writing "Father of the Bride," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," and "It's a Wonderful Life;" and has chosen to perform their original script rather than the more recent adaptation by Wendy Kesselman. When asked why she chose this play Booth replied, "I was surprised that the students knew so little about The Holocaust and World War II. It is critical for each generation to know the story and to tell it over and over, for it is in the telling that we remember that which we must never forget. Anne was one small light that extinguished the darkness."
Pima's performances commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013.
The student cast and crew have been invited to escort survivors in the 2013 Yom Hashoah Commemoration: A Cinematic Tribute to the Holocaust Survivors in Southern Arizona - April 7 at 2 p.m. in the Tucson Jewish Community Center. Free and open to the public.
An open dialogue with the audience, cast and director will follow every performance.
