Falcon Theater's Anne Frank Delivers the Truth
The excitement continues to build for Falcon’s latest production!
City Beat review:
Don’t miss Falcon’s production ofÂ â€œThe Diary of Anne Frankâ€ by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, based on the writings of Anne Frank.
â€œI still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart.â€
Forced to hide from the Nazi occupation of her home country, a young Jewish girl eloquently documents her familyâ€™s struggle for survival.Â The Diary of Anne Frank is an emotionally powerful story of the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of unspeakable atrocity.
Directed by Ted Weil and Tracy Schoster and produced by Ron Cropper, the cast includes: Jay D. Benson, Melinda Etter, Lisa Reymann,Â Jim Bussey, Thomas Langlois, HeidiÂ Anderson, Terry Gosdin, Julie Niesen,Â Bob BuchtmanÂ and Charity Farrell as Anne Frank.Â
All performances are at the Monmouth Theatre at 636 Monmouth Street (just 4 blocks south of the Levee) Newport, Kentucky.Â Performance dates are October 12, 13, 19, 20Ù, 26 and 27 at 8:00 p.m.Â Tickets are $15.00 for Adults and $12.00 for Students and Seniors.Â
ÙHolocaust survivor, Conrad Weiner, will speak to the audience immediately following this performance.Â
Everyone purchasing a ticket to the show will automatically be entered into a drawing to receive a free copy of Instant Karma: the Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.Â One CD will be given away at each performance.Â

I saw this last night and was very moved. The cast was very strong, but I was very impressed with the girl who played Anne (Charity Farrell). Very believable. As close as the seats are to the stage in this theatre, such a part requires a lot of skill to pull off. I never saw Ms. Farrell flinch once. She was in all the right places all the time. Still, the most powerful punch for me was delivered by the woman who played Mrs. Van Daan when she tells her husband that, when he’s hungry, to hold her. Mr. Van Daan played the same scene very well, merely in his reactions. Again, strong performances throughout. Great direction, great set (the small stage at Falcon is perfect for giving the impression of the cramped living conditions the Franks and the rest endured). Mr. Wiener, who spoke afterwards, was also very nice and interesting. He was a good speaker and answered a wide array of questions with honesty and good nature. I brought two friends who are infrequent theatre-goers and they were very moved by the performance and were very grateful that I asked them to come.
I was really impressed with the cast. Margot Frank played by Lisa Reymann was a very good first performance as a main character.
