Cate Stuart plays Anne Frank in “The Diary of Anne Frank,” July 17 through Aug. 3 at Stowe Theatre Guild. The play is directed by Scott Weigand and produced by Matthew Pierce of Waterbury; the cast includes Adam Silverman and Cynthia Seckler as Otto and Edith Frank, Evie Caserta as Margot Frank, and John Dunn, Alda Sauer-Norcoss, Connor McCarty, Adam Isaacs-Falbel, Julia Kitonis and Richard Pritsky. Exactly 75 years ago during World War II, Anne Frank, her family and four other residents were living safely in the “Secret Annex” in the upper floors of her father’s business in Amsterdam, and just weeks away from being discovered and arrested by SS officers. This year, in which Anne Frank would have been 90 had she lived, Stowe Theatre Guild will bring to life their time spent in hiding in the beautiful and touching drama “The Diary of Anne Frank.” In addition to the story on stage, the Guild has invited the Vermont Holocaust Memorial to present an exhibit in the Town Hall to educate viewers of stories from the Holocaust, as well as its relevance to today. The exhibit will be available for viewing in the hour before the show, and during intermission. Performances of the play are Wednesday through Saturday, July 17 through Aug. 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall Theatre, upstairs in the Akeley Memorial Building at 67 Main St. in Stowe. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for students and $14 for children (12 and younger). New this year, the first Thursday of each show will have discounted tickets of $15 each for all ages. For The Diary of Anne Frank, that performance will be Thursday, July 18. The box office outside the building is open ahead of each show, or visit stowetheatre.com, email tickets@stowetheatre.com or call 253-3961.
