The Diary of Anne Frank

by Lily M. – 6th grade

On April 14, 2010 two sixth grade English classes stepped onto a yellow school bus. Twenty minutes later they walked into the semi-darkness of the theater awaiting a play and experience they would never forget.

This play follows the story of a young Jewish girl becoming a woman. During World War 2, Anne and her family escape the persecution of Jews by going into hiding. As two years pass Anne Frank, with pen in hand, records her experiences, thoughts, and feelings in a plaid diary. As food becomes scarce and discovery lurks in every corner, Anne face hunger, loneliness, and isolation. She turns to her diary for consolation and sanctuary.

The youthful actress playing Anne was flawless. She bounced around energetically and her lines were spoken quickly but clearly. When I first saw the actress playing Mrs. Van Daan I gaped. I don’t understand how they could have a more perfect person. Boisterous and dramatic, this actress gets five stars. Now Margot was a different story: although she looked and acted like Margot, her lines weren’t very well spoken and were a bit mediocre.

As the play came to a close I sprang up and clapped my hands as loud as I could. This play had everything: drama, romance, and humor. Well, what are you waiting for? Go see it!

The Pied Piper is a wonderful musical filled with great songs, strong emotions, and an amazing cast. 

The Pied Piper, played by Aidan Marchetti, leads many creatures away from Hamelintown.   Paul Sanford does a great job of realistically portraying the mayor of the town.  The cast is really talented!  The dance tutor, played by Elaina Stevens, has a great voice and really plays the character  she is supposed to be.

Not just the cast, but also the crew has put in a lot of effort to make this show run properly.  The lights and sounds really add  effect, almost like that in a television show.  Mr. and Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Stone have really put a lot of time into this magical show, as well as the cast and crew. The show dates are March 4th, 5th, and 6th; this is a suspenseful show you don’t want to miss!  Please come and support Parker’s school play!
