Here's what the audiences have to say about THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK:
"Fabulous show." - Lee Jackman
"Must see!" - Ann Thomas
"My husband, our friends and myself were moved by the performance tonight (I was moved to tears, actually). Wonderful job by all of the actors, as always. Thank you for producing this play and for reminding us of the horrors of that period in our history. My friends are looking forward to reading more about Anne, her family and those affected by the War thanks to your portrayals. Keep up the great work." - Cherise Insocal
"Tonight I was privileged to share in a truly outstanding, impressive, touching, and moving theatrical experience. I was in the audience for the opening night of Inland Valley Repertory Theatre's production of The Diary of Anne Frank. This is a story that people need to see. One that shows what actually happened to a group real 'ordinary' people who were forced into circumstances that tested them in ways they likely never dreamed they would experience. They rose to great heights, fell to new depths, and discovered things about themselves and others. And we in the audience are given many things to consider, ponder and sit in respectful awe about. My thanks to each member of the outstanding cast for their contributions to an incredible performance: Lauren Bell, Michael Buczynski, Jill Gerber, Ron Hastings, Tayah Howard, Nathan Lightfoot, Valerie Lohman, Kenneth Martinez, Scott McDermott, and Leah Zimmerman (with the necessary additions of Scott Arnold, Colin Campbell, and Mark Mackenzie). My congratulations to co-directors Hope Kaufman, andFrank Minano for all of the things you did to bring your cast members to the point that they were prepared and able to do the things collectively that I saw them do in the telling of this impactful story this evening. And kudos to your crew who did all of those 'little, unseen things' that made the production what it was. You folks reading this have until May 6 to see one of a limited number of the remaining performances of this memorable production. Don't miss out. I believe that you, too, will be touched, perhaps altered in some way by what these fine people of Inland Valley Repertory Theatre will help you to experience." - Don Anderson
