In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence – their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.
Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write, I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

** Tully: Male presenting - "stage age" 27-39 (playing guitar a plus)
Smooth-talking, self-deprecating playboy. He's completely content with the life he's chosen as
the singer/bartender at a tropical resort, until he meets Rachel, a vacationer who upends his
heart. Guitar skills are useful.
**Rachel: Female presenting - "stage age" 27-33
Fully committed to her job and helping the world. Willing to put in as many hours of hard work as
it takes and expects everyone else to do that same. Suspicious of fools and operators, Rachel is
not easily distracted from her life plan.
**Tammy: Female presenting - "stage age" 30-39 (tap experience a plus)
Loyal friend to Rachel. Sees the best in people and has a zest for life that is often squelched by
her fiancé, Chad. Her low self-esteem manifests itself as denial in her own life.
**Brick: Male presenting - "stage age" 30-39 (tap experience a plus)
The Island bartender. Has a big heart and is a good friend to Tully. Not the brightest bulb, but
sensitive and thoughtful.
**Marley: Female presenting -"stage age" 35-49 (person of color preferred)
No-nonsense and assertive with an island accent. She runs the resort and keeps everyone in
check, but clearly cares about her employees, her customers, and J.D., an older island denizen.
**J.D.: Male presenting - "stage age" 60-79
A funny, endearing older man who always has a parrot on his shoulder. He's losing his vision and
his hearing but won't acknowledge it. A good-natured drunkard, he's always writing his memoirs
on bar napkins and, as it turns out, he's lived a full life.
