THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK Rescheduled at SSCC Theatre

SSCC_logoFirst, we’d like to thank all our patrons, cast and crew members, and the whole SSCC Theatre family for your incredible patience during this time.

We have been receiving questions on our policy regarding the ongoing novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and what it means for “The Diary of Anne Frank” and the “Let Me Be Myself” exhibit.

Closely working with the college, and in conjunction with our production team, we’ve made the decision to reschedule the production to May 22 – 24. This will ideally allow the world to get back to normal and get our cast and crew back into rehearsals. This, of course, is subject to change depending on national and state decisions.

For those who have already purchased tickets, your seats have been moved to the May dates. For those unable to attend in May, we understand entirely. Please email us at pr@sscctheatre.com with a request (including your name and order number) for a refund and we’ll get you taken care of. General ticket sales will resume on April 22.

We’re also working closely with the Anne Frank House and the “Let Me Be Myself” exhibit team to reschedule, and hope to have new dates announced soon.

For further updates on the production, exhibit, and any additional news, please keep an eye on SSCCTheatre.com

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, based on the original play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, Anne Frank (played by Abby Danner) 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. 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.
