The Diary of Anne Frank is a heartbreaking tale of a young Jewish girl trapped in one of history’s most terrifying eras. While in hiding from Nazis, Anne Frank confronts the dark reality of her situation with wit, bravery and unshaken honesty to emerge as one of the most inspiring figures of the 20th century.

 

Jim DiMunno plays Otto Frank in the Dairy of Anne Frank at GVT Lewisburg WVMaking his debut at Greenbrier Valley Theatre is Jim DiMunno, who will portray Anne’s father Otto Frank. DiMunno didn’t study theatre the traditional way but took his training as an engineer to make his body a machine for the art he wanted to bring to the world. An eclectic actor, there are few genres he has not tried, but most enjoyed his roles as Candy in Of Mice and Men and Jabe Torrence in Orpheus Descending. He has always wanted to play an iconic character such as Otto Frank, and be a part of such a powerful story.

 

This engineer-turned-actor feels so strongly about this show because he knows the importance of remembering the horror. This account of the Holocaust is particularly moving because it is that of a child facing this danger; not with hate and anger, but with empathy and compassion.

 

“She made a deliberate attempt to understand her oppressors, exceedingly rare for a young person,” DiMunno said. “There were numerous other stories, fact and fictional, that were told of WWII; but none as effectual.”

 

The tale comes to an end with DiMunno’s character, Otto, giving the audience a brief glimpse into what oppressed people everywhere truly fear, but we also see the strength and hope that could not be trampled by the hate he had to survive.

 

“As extraordinarily tragic as the Holocaust was, as especially evidenced in this story, we can’t help but be struck by the indefatigable hopefulness that permeated every line of this story …” the actor said. “The lesson: don’t let your heart light dim, keep that fire stoked, at all costs!”

 

Full of hope, fear, love and perseverance, this production of The Diary of Anne Frank is one you don't want to miss.
