The Diary of Anne Frank Auditions

The Stage Company will hold auditions for the first production of its thirty-eighth season, The Diary of Anne Frank, by Wendy Kesselman, on Monday, August 26th and Tuesday August 27th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the East Theater of the Varsity Center.

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. In this gripping new adaptation, newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary impassioned story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule

There will be cold readings from the script. Actors may also prepare a 60 second monologue, but it is not required. Please bring a complete list of any potential conflicts you may have from now until showtime that would prevent you from attending rehearsals. Please be up front and open about your conflicts.
