STAGE Cast Club is proud to present The Diary of Anne Frank! STAGE, the theater group that is producing the show, is a cast club for Walt Disney World Cast Members and will be collecting donations for The Florida Holocaust Museum during the show run. STAGE will then be matching the total amount collected for an even greater donation to The FHM!
The live show runs June 15-19, 2016 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, FL. All performances will begin at 8:00 pm. This is a play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett and is based upon “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.” Newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman and directed by Andy Waldinger.
During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday, and twenty two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and three other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father’s office building in Amsterdam. The sealed-off upper-rooms also contained a hidden door which the Franks would hide in during the parts when Nazi soldiers were investigating the buildings for harbored Jews. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation going to Nazi concentration camps.
