Anne Frank and Me

by: Cherie Bennett

directed by: Becca Parker*

s_960_mainThis multiple national award-winning new American classic, which was a hit in New York, is about the awakening of a modern teen Holocaust denier. Nicole Burns doubts the truth and cares even less, but ultimately comes face-to-face with the hell of the Holocaust, and—in an extraordinary sequence—meets Anne Frank on a cattle car to Auschwitz. We start out with Nicole in today’s teen world of MTV. Hip-hop dancing, unfinished homework assignments, and young love are all transported with her to Nazi-occupied Paris, 1942-44, and then are brought forward again to the light and hope of the present.

Recommended for ages 13+ due to adult content (death). Please note, this show depicts scenes from the Holocaust, which may be disturbing for some patrons. (Why did it get this rating?)
