PATCHOGUE, NY – OCTOBER 14, 2010 – The St. Joseph’s College Drama Society is pleased to announce its fall 2010 production, “The Diary of Anne Frank,” by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. Performances will take place November 19 and 20 at 8 p.m. and November 21 at 2 p.m. in the D’Ecclesiis Auditorium on the College’s Long Island Campus.
Student members of the SJC Drama Society will present this classic account of a German-Jewish teenage girl forced into hiding during World War. Using her own words, “The Diary of Anne Frank” chronicles the young girl’s heart-warming, yet tragic story.
“Our production of Goodrich and Hackett's “The Diary of Anne Frank” is more than just a play to us … it is a message about having hope when the world around you is falling apart,” said William Gonyou ’10, production director. “Anne's message has touched the cast and crew in so many ways that we want nothing more than to pass her message along to viewers.”
Individual tickets for the show are priced at $7; $5 for students and seniors. Tickets are sold in advance and at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, e-mail the SJC Drama Society at email@example.com.
