This was a terrific show! The entire cast was wonderful, no exception. The set really gave you the feeling of the cramped quarters. The actors even stayed in character and stayed in the attic during the intermission! Much better than we...continued

The cast did an extraordinary job! Very well done. Very emotional! They really researched their parts and even stayed after the show to answer questions that the audience had.

The show was fantastic. We took the whole family and we all were affected - very intense, quality actors, well scripted. Tried to get tickets to go again but it was sold out!

The REP will also host Sunday Talk Back Sessions with the cast, crew, and special guest panelists to speak about tolerance in our society.

Description

One of the most poignant stories of the Holocaust, The Diary of Anne Frank, sponsored by The Rubay Family, tells of Anne’s spirit, optimism and nobility as recounted in her famous diary kept during World War II.

In this gripping new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, 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. 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.

“We’re very proud to be able to tell this story,” said the REP’s Artistic Director Ovington Michael Owston. “Its message is timeless, and shows the true character of the human spirit.

The REP will create a Museum of Tolerance aimed at creating a human rights laboratory and educational center that will challenge the Santa Clarita community to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.
