Most are familiar with the book, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, which was recovered by Anne's father and later sold to Dutch publishers. The Jewish teenager's tragic story was made into a play in 1955 by Albert Hackett and his wife Frances Goodrich, earning the Hollywood writers a Pulitzer Price for drama the following year. They went on to adapt their stage play for a movie version, netting three Academy awards. Now Queensbury Theatre is presenting a new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman; The Diary of Anne Frank is tailored for modern audiences and digs deeper into this horrifying story of claustrophobia, fear, laughter and grief. More than 30 actors tried out for the lead, making for a tough decision for director L. Robert Westeen, but the part eventually went to Artemis-Melania Postolos. 8 p.m. May 6. Also 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. May 14. May 5 through May 20. 12777 Queensbury Lane. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit queensburytheatre.org. $23 to $28.
