Diary of Anne Frank (at St. John’s Cathedral, Taliaferro Hall)

January 22, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Apex Theatre Studio will present The Diary of Anne Frank during the month of January at various venues in the Northeast Florida area. Performances will take place on January 21st-22nd at St. John’s Cathedral (Taliaferro Hall) in Jacksonville. T

“With the rising increase in anti-Semitism in this area, we felt an urgency to bring this story to local audiences, especially students,” remarked Ian Mairs, Managing Director. The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of human history. Every generation encounters the text and has the same reaction. In the face of such inhumanity, the human spirit still perseveres.

The production is under the direction of guest artist George Judy, professor of theatre at Louisiana State University. It features a mixture of students and professional teaching artists. The role of Anne Frank will be played by Eva Gassert, a sophomore at Nease High School.

Tickets are $20.00 for adults and $15.00 for students. Reservations and more information can be found at www.apextheatrejax.com.
