News   March Diary Will Help Pace Students Raise Funds for BC/EFA
 
Next month students from Pace University will offer two performances of The Diary of Anne Frank to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The March 3 and 6 performances will be held in the Multipurpose Room, located on the campus of Pace University. Show time is 8 PM.

Steve McCasland will direct the evenings with co-direction by Lisa C.M. Lamothe. The cast will include Kadey Carter as Anne, Molly Bernard, Kerrie Bond, Mitchell Sawyer, DJ Hopson, Mariah Martin, Steve Lesce, Brad LeBoeuf, Kaitlin Stern and Doug Plaut.

The Diary of Anne Frank "follows two years of Anne Frank's life from 1942 to 1944, when she and her family were forced into hiding during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. In her diary, thirteen-year-old Anne recorded mostly her hopes, frustrations, clashes with her parents, and observations of her companions. The final entry in her diary coincides with the capture of the family, which led to her untimely death."
