Cast list announced for fall play

Bluffton University Theatre will present the play “The Diary of Anne Frank” based upon “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl” from November 10-13. The play is by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett and newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10-12, and at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 13, in Ramseyer Auditorium in College Hall. Dr. Melissa Friesen, professor of theatre and communication, will direct the show.

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.
