THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
GCA FY17
THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett's play is based on the true story of a teenage Jewish girl who kept a diary about her family's two years in hiding from the Nazis during World War II. Despite the family’s deprivation, Anne continues to believe, as she states her diary several times, in the inherent goodness of people. Anne’s diary ends abruptly in August 1944, when she and her family are taken into custody by the Germans and transported to concentration camps. “The Diary of Anne Frank” was the winner of the 1956 Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, Critics Circle Award and virtually every other coveted prize in theatre. The play will be directed by Heike Hambley.

SANKOFA: COLORED PEOPLE'S TIME
The Gallo Center and Sankofa Theatre Company, which have previously teamed for "Fences," "The Piano Lesson" and "Looking Over the President's Shoulder," will celebrate Black History Month with this presentation of Leslie Lee's absorbing full-length play. Through a series of vignettes, Lee explores the history of Black Americans, from a group of slaves meeting in secret to discuss the Bible just before the Civil War, to a couple debating the Back-To-Africa movement during the Harlem Renaissance, to another couple resting their feet after marching in Montgomery.  "The hero [in the play] is not a character, but the black spirit for survival - its guts, humor and tenaciousness. " - The New York Times

WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Set on the campus of a small New England university, Edward Albee’s 1963 Tony Award winner for Best Play opens with the main characters, George and Martha, coming home from a party at her father's house.

Even though the pair arrives home at two o'clock in the morning, they are expecting guests: the new young math professor and his wife. The evening turns into a nightmare of escalating fighting and humiliations. George and Martha even attack their guests, attempting to force them to reveal their dirty secrets and true selves. Ultimately everyone's secrets have been revealed and purged. The play, to be directed by Jim Johnson, has adult content. It is not recommended for those under the age of 18.

SANGRE DE UN ANGEL
GCA FY17
SANGRE DE UN ANGEL
SANGRE DE UN ANGEL (BLOOD OF AN ANGEL) Gallo Center Repertory Company. This dramatic play illustrates how the choices we make can affect our relationships and our lives forever. While broaching issues of immigration, acculturation and identity, it tells the story of a Latino teenager who finds himself involved with a gang, leading him and his family to an unlikely tragic death. "Sangre de un Ángel" (Blood of an Angel) is inspired by the true story of Adam Chapa, who was shot in his driveway by a teen gang member in East Austin, Texas. The bi-lingual play was written by Roxanne Schroeder-Arce, who also wrote "Mariachi Girl," a big success for the Gallo Center in 2015. "Sangre de un Ángel" will be directed by Kimberly Ogden.

CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON
GCA FY17
CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON
CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON. "A Twist of Lemmon" is based on actor and classically trained musician Chris Lemmon's book of the same title, which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two Oscars (for "Mister Roberts" and "Save the Tiger"). Chris tells Jack's story in his father's voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He'll have you crying and laughing with his stories about Jack's relationships with legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend, Walter Matthau. Jack loved his son Chris, but like many actors put his career first and family second. It's that relationship that's the focal point for this extremely moving story.
