Play: The Diary of Anne Frank
April 4 - May 19, 2019 | Seattle Children's Theatre | Ages 9+ | Tickets
By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett | Adapted by Wendy Kesselman | Directed by Janet Allen
"In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart."
This sobering true story of eight people living in hiding in Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II, as seen through the eyes of 13-year-old Anne Frank, comes to SCT as a co-production with Indiana Repertory Theatre. Anne's words reach out to us over the generations, inspiring us to never forget, to never give up on the power and goodness of the human spirit, and to always "fill life with living."
Film: Four Sisters
April 28, 2019 | Lynwood Theater, Bainbridge Island | 2:00pm | Learn More
Claude Lanzmann's last film Four Sisters will have its West Coast premiere at the Lynwood Theatre on Bainbridge Island. Starting in 1999, Claude Lanzmann made several films that could be considered satellites of SHOAH, comprised of interviews conducted in the 1970s that didn’t make it into the final, monumental work. In the last years of the late director’s life, he decided to devote a film to four women from four different areas of Eastern Europe. Film sponsored by Kol Shalom Congregation and curated by Tova Gannana. Please join us at Earth & Vine Wine Bar across the street from the Lynwood Theatre for a conversation following the film.

The Parting: Music of Remembrance
May 19, 2019 | Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall | Benaroya Hall, Seattle | Details & Tickets
The world premiere of a new chamber opera by composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason. Commissioned by Music of Remembrance. It's May 19, 1944 - the final evening at home for the great Hungarian poet Miklos Radnoti and his beautiful devoted wife Fanni. Foreseeing his likely fate in a forced labor camp, Radnoti wonders as we often do why we are given life: "To learn what love is. To live. To make beautiful things. To die." Facing these stark illuminations brings a bright awareness of being.
