April 15, 2021 [St. Petersburg, FL] — The Florida Holocaust Museum is excited to present the production, Letters From Anne & Martin, streaming live on our Facebook pagefor free on Thursday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m.
Combining the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this compelling production evokes the timeless message of hope for peace and a more united world. The production is a dramatic presentation of parallel worlds and kindred spirits in our history, drawn entirely from the text of Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl (1947, expanded 1995) and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail (1963).
A virtual live performance will also be offered to all Florida middle and high schools in partnership with The Florida Department of Education on Friday, April 23 at 11:00 a.m. To register for the Florida middle and high school performance, click here. This performance will also be recorded and available on-demand after the event. If you have questions about the school performance, please email: email@example.com.
This production was written, produced, and directed by The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. Letters From Anne & Martin was conceived by Hannah Vaughn, developed by Alexandra Gellner, and directed by Mario Haynes. Parish Bradley is cast as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Olivia Konteatis is cast as Anne Frank.
