CIT celebrates Anne Frank

Thursday, 31st January, 2019 8:41am

A celebration of the life of Anne Frank in words, music and song is premiering in Cork this week.

The CIT Cork School of Music Youth Theatre is performing 'I am Anne Frank’, which opened last night and also runs tonight 31 January and tomorrow 1 February in Cork School of Music.

Anne Frank’s acclaimed diary documenting her experience as a Jew in hiding during the Second World War remains a bestseller today, and the students’ performance serves as a reminder of the trials and tribulations of growing up amid the horrors of the Holocaust.

Adapted and directed for the stage from ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ and survivors’ accounts by Peadar Donohoe, creator and director of ‘The Shakespeare Sessions’ and ‘The Bullying Prevention Session’, the show sold out its preview run last spring and is now premiering on Leeside.

The performance runs tonight and tomorrow night at 8pm at the Stack Theatre in CIT Cork School of Music on Union Quay. Tickets are €15/10 concession and are available from events.cit.ie.
