Yesterday, after a fun picnic, Shira and I made our way to my niece's school, where we saw her perform the lead role in the Diary of Anne Frank. My expectations were blown away: my niece and the rest of the cast did an outstanding job portraying this important and heartrending story. The acting, the set, and the technical aspects all added up to a show beyond what I'd expect at the high school level.
Here's a couple of snapshots from the evening: the first is of Anne and Peter having a private moment in the attic (insert nervous comments from my brother). And the next is of the diary itself after the show. Apparently the red and white checked cover on the diary is historically accurate.
We're so proud of her!
