NIC presents The Diary of Anne Frank with speaking events | Arts & Culture
For the first time in 20 years the North Idaho College Theater Department will present The Diary of Anne Frank. The play, written by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, is being directed by NIC alum Tracey Vaughan who played the role of Anne in the school’s first production.
The play will run for a total of five nights beginning next week, October 24, 25 and 26, and continuing the following week, October 31, November 1, 2. Two special speaking events are planned for the fall production.
On October 25th, Dr. Bill Proser, a nationally recognized holocaust expert will host a talk-back with cast and director following the performance. Community members may know Dr. Prosser as the founder of the Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy.
On October 31st, Carla Peperzak will speak before the performance at 6:30 pm. Peperzak was a Nazi resister who knew the Frank family. Peperzak attended Hebrew school with Anne Frank’s sister, Margot, and her family lived a block away from the Franks. As part of the resistance, Peperzak helped to make new ID cards for Jews hiding in Holland.
All play performances and guest speaker events are free and open to the public.
