On Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 3:00 p.m. Brentwood Library at 8109 Concord Road, Brentwood will offer community members the opportunity to experience the positive spirit of Anne Frank through “The Window.” Those wishing to attend should register here.
“The Window: Expressions of Anne Frank” is a play which takes the words from the diary of Anne Frank and weaves them into a story brought to life through the voice of Spring Hill actor Sheridan Hillegeist. A musical theme runs throughout 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 .” Come witness for yourself the spirit of Anne Frank whose uplifting words in the face of persecution still inspire us today. There is no admission fee.
This performance of “The Window” is being presented in coordination with World Holocaust Remembrance Day celebrated internationally on January 27th.
