"The Window," based on Anne Frank’s World War II diary, coming to Brentwood on Sunday


"The Window," based on Anne Frank’s World War II diary, coming to Brentwood on Sunday

“The Window: Expressions of Anne Frank” is coming to the Brentwood Library this coming Sunday in an early commemoration of World Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“The Window” takes the words from the diary of Anne Frank, a teen-age girl who hid from the Nazis during World War II in the occupied Netherlands and weaves her words into a story brought to life through the voice of Spring Hill actor Sheridan Hillegeist.

The play will be performed at 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 13, 2019, at the Brentwood Library, just east  of I-65 at Concord Road in Brentwood.

The play offers audiences the opportunity to experience the positive spirit of Anne Frank, whose uplifting words in the face of persecution still inspire us today. A musical theme runs through the play, with violin solos performed by Franklin musician Angel Belog.

Written and directed by Tennessee artist and educator Dr. Deanne Collins, the 45-minute presentation begins with a brief historical introduction about WWII and the Holocaust and ends with a question and answer session.
The content is suitable for ages middle school through adult as it touches upon such themes as bullying, fear, loneliness and the angst of being a teenager. Through the window in the attic of the family’s hiding place, Anne could see “the sky, a chestnut tree and a hint of the world.”
There is no admission fee.
This performance of “The Window” is being presented in coordination with World Holocaust Remembrance Day celebrated internationally on January 27.
