MOUNT GILEAD — Morrow Little Theatre presents the historical drama “The Diary of Anne Frank,” April 12, 13 and 14 at the Capitol Theatre.
The show takes you back to the 1940s in the height of Nazi Germany and the holocaust. The Frank family goes into hiding to protect their eldest daughter, who has been called up to report for “work camp.” The Franks hide with another family, the Van Daans, and a local dentist, Mr. Dussel.
