A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production performed by National Players

In 1941 Amsterdam, 13-year-old Anne Frank goes into hiding with her family from the Nazis. For the next two years, she never leaves the attic where her family is concealed. With fear of discovery ever present, Anne finds solace writing in her diary, capturing the daily lives of the secret annex’s inhabitants with wit, determination, and idealism.

With a multicultural cast, National Players brings the true story of this incredibly insightful young girl to the stage in hopes of inspiring the next generation to stand up for justice rather than sit back in apathy.

 Recommended for grades 8-12 (90 minutes)

Curriculum Connections: History, Holocaust Studies, Relationships, Drama

A Study Guide will be available approximately one month prior to the performance. 

 For group and/or single tickets, call our School-Time Coordinator at 607-733-5639 ext. 248.

Located in Mark Twain Country just south of the Finger Lakes, the Clemens Center is the region's premier performing arts center with two spectacular performance spaces. Mandeville Hall is a flexible, black box venue suitable for intimate performances, corporate events, and parties. The majestic Powers Theater is an architectural treasure that has been restored to its vaudevillian-era grandeur. Magnificent murals, gold-leaf details, and reconstructed opera boxes adorn the theater just as they did when it opened in 1925. The 1,618-seat venue has been called the most beautiful theatre between New York City and Buffalo—it is truly awe-inspiring! Renovation in 2008 included expanding the stage and upgrading technical equipment, making it possible to showcase the best in live entertainment. From nationally touring Broadway shows and dazzling dance programs to rousing rock 'n' roll concerts and feel-good family entertainment, the Clemens Center excites and delights audiences of all ages! The Center’s mission, though, extends beyond entertainment and into the community through school programs, outreach activities for the underserved, and subsidized facility rentals for its six Resident Companies: Common Time Choral Group, Elmira Little Theatre, New Heights Dance Theater, Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre, and Thursday Morning Musicales. These nonprofit arts organizations provide community members with the opportunity to perform several times a year on a professional theatre stage. The Clemens Center is the perfect place to connect with family and friends and enjoy memorable experiences that enrich, inspire, and amaze.
