The Culver-Stockton College Division of Fine Arts presents theatre classic, The Diary of Anne Frank, in the Mabee Black Box Theatre, running Nov.1 - 3 at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee, Nov. 4 at 3 p.m.
Delving deep into the honor and integrity of a human spirit that cannot be compromised even in the face of danger, the play is based on the tragic real-life story of a young Jewish girl and her family living in hiding from evil forces in a war that ultimately exterminates them.
