LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – CenterStage, Acting Out presents a public performance on October 13, at the Jewish Community Center's Linker Auditorium. The powerfully performance will be And Then They Came for Me: Remembering The World of Anne Frank.
After the performance, Fred Gross, a local Holocaust survivor, will speak about this family's experience fleeing Belgium and France as Nazi troops invaded. Written by three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee James Still, this play is part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address and part remembrance. In this theatrical experience the actors will use real interviews to tell the stories of the lives of three Jewish teenagers, Anne Frank, Ed Silverberg and Eva Geiringer during the Nazi Germany's Holocaust.
CenterStage Acting Out is a professional touring children's theatre troupe that travels to communities to present educational and relevant theatre to students. This is the general public's chance to see this moving production and to hear Holocaust history first-hand. This important community event is from 12:30-2:30pm Sunday, October 13. Tickets are available to reserve through www.CenterStageJCC.org/actingout, or call (502) 459-0660.
