Seeking:DIARY OF ANNE FRANK Performances are Thursday, Friday, Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm Anne Frank (Female) 13 -15; Otto and Edith’s youngest daughter; lively, curious, intelligent, with an innate sense of cheeky humor; able to remain optimistic in the face of extreme challenges, yet clear-eyed about the situation when required or when nightmares strike in the middle of the night; a budding sexuality feeds her curiosity and yearning; she has the vivid imagination of a born writer. Otto Frank (Male, 40-60) Cultured, contemplative, practical and sensitive; head of the Frank family and of the ‘annex family’; comfortable with being in charge and blessed with great patience; Anne is very close to him; he is never quite sure that he has done the right thing by hiding his family rather than emigrating, but he never shows that to the others; a natural leader. Edith Frank (Female, 35-60) Kind, caring and dedicated; she loves her children, but because of her natural reserve and fears, is not as close to her daughters as is her husband; this hurts her deeply; along with her husband, she often serves as peacemaker within the attic; keeps busy with chores, as if to fend off the truth of their situation with activity. Margot Frank (Female) 16-18; takes after her mother with a humility, reserve, and studiousness, that makes her quite different from her younger sister; in Anne’s eyes she is the more beautiful, smart and grown-up of the siblings; while she is envious of Anne’s relationship with Peter, she is not ‘jealous’ in any conventional sense; perhaps the most innately generous person in the Annex. Miep Gies (Female, mid 30's) A very well-liked, generous secretary in Mr. Frank's office, Miep helps to protect the families in hiding. Along with Mr. Kraler, she brings to the refugees food, supplies, and news from the outside world. Peter VanDaan (Male) 16-18; a shy, reserved teenager who, at first, doesn’t know how to deal with two young women in such close proximity; he’s honest and sweet, with a good heart, if awkward social skills; his disdain for Anne’s flighty nature develops into a close relationship over the course of the play. Mr. Kraler (Male, 40's) A businessman who works with Miep to help protect the people in hiding, Mr. Kraler risks his life to help his friends. Mrs. Petronella VanDaan (Female, 40-60) Vanity, pride and ego drive her, and she is often the cause of friction in the attic; she seems to value ‘things’, especially her fur coat, above her family and friends; yet she is a smart, sometimes vivacious and cultured presence as well; the psychic and physical toll of the long confinement in the attic is probably most evident in her deteriorating mental state. Mr. Hermann VanDaan (Male, 40-60) opinionated, egotistical, a domineering husband and father; he is a former business partner of Mr. Frank, who helped the Franks immigrate from Holland; the debt has been repaid many times over, but neither Mr. Van Daan nor Mr. Frank acknowledge that; fleshy, if not portly, his appearance is an outward reflection of the gluttony, both physical and emotional, that rules his nature. Mr. Dussel (early 50's) Difficult to get along with, Mr. Dussell joins the Franks and the Van Daans after they have been in hiding about two months. SYNOPSIS: In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. 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. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through. ______________________ LITTLE WOMEN Performances are Thursday, Friday, Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm Jo (Female, 18-25) Ages 16 - 24 within the show.

Role requires dancing in heels and lip syncing. Rexy/Jason (Male, any ethnicity, mid-20s to early 30s). GREAT double role.
