The Westerville North Theatre Department’s production of Anne Frank & Me will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the school auditorium on Thursday, April 10; Friday, April 11; and Saturday, April 12.   Tickets cost $6 and are available on-line at www.Westervillenorth.com  and at the door. The production is age appropriate for children 10 and up.  A study guide is available for anyone in attendance or any teacher in the district who would like one, by contacting mollohak@wcsoh.org.   

Students who have studied the Holocaust might find this play to be very intriguing.  The national award-winning new American classic production is about the awakening of a modern teen Holocaust denier.  High school pupil Nicole Burns doubts the truth and cares even less, but ultimately comes face-to-face with the Holocaust, and in an extraordinary sequence, meets Anne Frank in a cattle car on its way to Auschwitz.  The play begins with Nicole in today’s teen world of hip-hop dancing, unfinished homework assignments and young love.  Along with Nicole, the audience is transported back in time to Nazi-occupied Paris, a work camp in Auschwitz and then brought forward again to the light and hope of the present.
