Danville High School will present "And Then They Came For Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank," a play that follows the lives of two teenagers during the Holocaust.
The performance features live theater scenes that portray personal accounts of two teenagers, Ed and Eva (Matthew DeLuca and Elizabeth Trollinger), during the Holocaust. The live scenes feature their personal accounts of hiding, being sent to concentration camps, and their ultimate survival. These are interspersed with current videotaped interviews and war clips in this multi-media theatre piece.
