  • The Diary of Anne Frank



    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, and their grief. Adapted from the original stage play, this transcendently powerful new adaptation interweaves survivor accounts and newly discovered writings from the diary itself to create a deeply emotional story of those persecuted under Nazi rule. In this powerfully raw retelling, 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.
    *Please note we have switched the show dates to February and changed the location to the Halton Theater.
    If you have already purchased tickets, our Box Office staff will contact you.
    Thank you for your flexibility!

    A group of nervous young people find themselves as finalists in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. These quirky yet charming outsiders learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. With an engaging, tuneful score and a sweet, funny book that won the 2005 Tony Award, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its "perspicacious," "jocular," and "effervescent" spellers.
