The Diary of Anne Frank
Director: Jenna Mate

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 parents, sister, and three other people. Hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father’s office building in Amsterdam, Anne and the others cope with the day-to-day struggles of life in cramped quarters, as the specter of tragedy looms, ever-present, over their every move.


JCC Community Theatre is looking to cast 5 male and 5 female actors (ages 10+) from the Tenafly area to perform The Diary of Anne Frank at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Eric Brown Theatre. Auditions will be held at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Eric Brown Theatre: 411 East Clinton Avenue Tenafly, NJ 07670
