SSCC auditions for ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’

Submitted story

The SSCC Theatre will hold auditions for the spring production of “The Diary of Anne Frank” by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, and newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman.

Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on the Southern State Community College Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.

Based upon “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl,” in this transcendently powerful new adaptation, 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.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a dramatic one- to two-minute monologue. Those interested in working on available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions.

If interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, contact Director Rainee Angles ([email protected]) to schedule an alternate audition date prior to Jan. 17.

“The Diary of Anne Frank” will be performed April 3-5. For more information about available roles and rehearsal schedule, visit
