The Diary Of Anne Frank
Produced by Special Arrangement with Dramatists Play Service
By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Directed by Anthony Brown
“Why, oh why can’t people live together peacefully”
Anne Frank dreamt of immortality as a writer; she little realised that it
would be her teenage diary that made her one of the most powerful
voices in literature.
In German-occupied Amsterdam during World War II, the Frank family
has gone into hiding with another Jewish family in the attic of Otto
Frank’s warehouse in order to escape persecution and imprisonment.
For two years, eight people live in one room, in fear of their lives, and
13-year old Anne documents their existence in forensic detail.
Through her precocious eyes are revealed the petty disputes, the
personality clashes, the shared little pleasures: until, betrayed, they
are discovered and sent to concentration camps.
Anne, her sister and mother all perished, but her father survived and
published his daughter’s diary as a testament to the resilience of
the human spirit.
An audition piece will be given to every auditionee. It is expected that the auditionee will learn the lines of the audition piece and present it on an agreed date with the director.
An audition piece will be sent out once an audition time has been confirmed.
We are looking for high standard of performance for each of the roles.
A rehearsal schedule is prepared and will be given on first response to any enquiries
made by an auditionee.
It is a good idea to come to the audition in character, dress/shoes/hair or anything that
you feel is appropriate for the role you are seeking.
Applicants should note that reading the play prior to their audition would be highly advantageous. A perusal copy of the script is available to download: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qcntzhcc212rdv4/AABs9qlii-3Ad_tbvBpaK-zma?dl=0
