Image for LGHS Wildcat Theatre presentation - And then they came for meLGHS Wildcat Theatre presents And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank on October 14 and 15.

And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with two childhood friends of Anne Frank and their Holocaust experiences with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, this production is like a historic newsreel brought to life on the stage. This is what live theatre does especially well–moving a big subject like the Holocaust into the realm of personal understanding and connection. It will open your heart with curiosity and compassion.

Don’t miss this stirring presentation by the LGHS Wildcat Theatre!
