NIC presents special production of ‘The Diary of Anne Frank'

The North Idaho College Theatre Department is presenting The Diary of Anne Frank, directed NIC alum Tracey Vaughan at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24, 25, 31; and Nov. 1 and 2. There will also be two special speaking events on Oct. 25 and Oct. 31.

The NIC Theatre Department produced the same play 20 years ago, with Vaughan playing the role of Anne Frank under the direction of Tim Rarick. The play is based on the famous book Diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank, which documents Frank's experiences while hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam during the Holocaust.

In addition to the play, two speaking events are taking place. On Oct. 25, Dr. Bill Proser, founder of the Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy and nationally recognized Holocaust expert, will host a talk-back with the cast and director following the performance. On Oct. 31, Carla Peperzak, a Nazi resister who knew the Frank family, will speak at 6:30 p.m. before that evening's performance.

All of these events are free and open to the public.

The cast includes NIC students Anika Bryceson, Patric Schwab, CJ Moore, Diana Bailey, Alyssa Maurer, and Joshua Lynch, as well as NIC instructor Kathie O'Brien and community members Keith Knight (who was in the production 20 years ago), Dan Taylor, and Brook Bassett.
